An official in the Caddo parish is moving that pajama pants be banned in public after an incident at a local Walmart where one man in a group revealed himself while wearing pajamas.
Michael Williams, a commissioner in the parish, started the proposal for no pajamas in public. He was actually among the group of shoppers in Walmart that were flashed by the man in pajamas.
