PHEONIX, Ariz.- A man's choice of clothes may have gotten him sent to the slammer. Now he's speaking out about the ordeal.

He says his pants weren't around his ankles, but sitting slightly below his waist. An airline attendant asked him to pull his pants up, and said he wouldn't listen.

After he ignored the request, the pilot made made a citizen's arrest and waited for the police to arrive. He was sent to jail where his mother bailed him out.
