(CBS/KOVR/AP) SAN FRANCISCO -- The saggy pants saga of a University of New Mexico football player who was arrested and removed from a US Airways plane in San Francisco last month is apparently over, with any potential charges dropped.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe announced Wednesday his office had reviewed the June 15 arrest of DeShon Marman and determined criminal charges were not warranted, according to CBS affiliate KOVR.

Marman was arrested on suspicion of trespassing, battery of a police officer and obstruction after police say he refused the captain's to leave a US Airways flight after boarding at the San Francisco airport.

According to airline officials, Marman was asked repeatedly to pull up his pants but did not listen. They say he was exposing a body part.

Marman's attorney has denied that his client's skin was showing. Marman, who is black, has accused the airline of racial discrimination.
