Memphis Teen Shot In Behind Over Saggy Pants

Posted:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Anger over a Memphis teenager's sagging pants ended with gunfire, a bullet to the buttocks and an aggravated assault charge.

Police Sgt. Ron Perry says 45-year-old Kenneth E. Bonds saw two male teens walking along a street and yelled at them to pull up their pants.

Perry says they refused, the three began arguing and Bonds brandished a pistol.

The first shot missed. The teens fled, more rounds were fired and a 17-year-old was struck in the buttocks. He went to a hospital in non-critical condition.

The Commercial Appeal first reported the Sept. 25 shooting. A man who answered a telephone listed for Bonds said it was a wrong number.

The Associated Press isn't identifying the teens because they're juveniles.
