INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Police in Indianapolis said they arrested a man whose pants sagged below his knees, fully exposing his boxer shorts.

Indianapolis Metro police officer Daniel Green's report said he was patrolling on foot at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday when he spotted Demetrius Russ, 21, sitting on a green electrical box with his pants pulled down below his knees, The Indianapolis Star reported Wednesday.

"I informed him that he was sitting on private property with his pants pulled down on top of an electrical box," the officer's report read. "I asked Mr. Russ why his pants were down to his knees and he informed me he was just 'swagging.' I informed him that swagging did not involve exposing your genitals through your boxers because your pants were pulled all the way down."

Green said Russ, who seemed intoxicated, spouted profanity and insulted him when he told him he could not sit on the box.

Russ was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
