University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman was arrested after wearing saggy pants on a plane at San Francisco airport.

He was charged with trespassing, battery of a police officer and obstruction after he refused to leave the US Airways flight on the captain's orders.

According to airline officials, Marman was asked repeatedly to pull up his pants but did not listen. They say he was exposing a body part.

Prosecutors decided to drop the charges against Marman.

Marman's attorney denied that his client's skin was showing and is accusing the airline of racial discrimination.
