Deshon Marman, a 20-year old University of New Mexico football player was kicked off a flight on Wednesday after he was told his clothing was revealing too much, the Associated Press reports.

Police say Marman's baggy pants led to his arrest at the San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday.

Marman was boarding a U.S. Airways flight to Albuquerque when an employee saw that his pants "were below his buttocks, but above the knees, and his boxer shorts were showing."

SFPD Sgt. Michael Rodriguez told the San Francisco Chronicle that Marman was asked to pull up his pants, but he refused. He was then asked to leave the plane.

Fifteen minutes later Marman got off the plane and was cited for trespassing. Marman's mother, Donna, told the Chronicle that her son had attended a friend's funeral and was "still in an emotionally raw state."

Valerie Wunder, a US Airways spokeswoman, says the airline's dress code forbids "indecent exposure or inappropriate" attire.
