OCALA, Fla. - The mayor of Ocala says he made a mistake when he signed the city's saggy pants ban into ordinance into law.

Mayor Kent Gwinn told the Ocala Star-Banner he was against the ordinance and only signed it by mistake.

When the paper asked Gwinn if he reads everything he signs, Gwinn said he does, but this time he didn't read every page because he says he had already read it on the council agenda.

Gwinn said he will ask the City Council to reconsider the ordinance.
