Pollock explained that his suspenders were the culprit and he didn’t want to take them off, but guards kept asking him to walk through until the alerts stopped, the sheriff’s office said.

After a heated argument with guards, deputies said Pollock unhooked his suspenders, dropped his pants, took them off, placed them in the bin and went through the metal detector.

As he was standing in the Family Division Rotunda in just his shirt and underwear, the sheriff’s office said deputies were called and took him into custody.
