    The saggy pants saga knows no bounds in San Francisco -- and, apparently, has yet to end.

    This week, a San Francisco high school teacher in the Sunset District called police to intervene in a dispute with a student, who "became belligerent and took a fighting stance" after he was told to pull up his pants, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    Police responded to the 2100 block of 24th Avenue at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. San Francisco Unified School District's Lincoln High School is nearby. Lincoln High is the alma mater of Deshon Marman, who catapulted to national attention in June when he was kicked off of a US Airways flight at San Francisco International Airport for allegedly failing to follow flight crews' instructions to pull up his pants.

    Marman was arrested, but was not charged with a crime after the national outcry. He has sued the airline, which has failed to apologize, and which allowed another passenger, a white male, to fly wearing purple lingerie. Marman, a student and football player at the University of New Mexico, is black.

    In this latest instance, San Francisco police took no action, according to the newspaper. No further information is available.
