Telling someone to quit "Sagging" could be harmful to your health. This latest news story is evidence of that.

Eighteen-year-old Cody Burns of New Albany, Indiana reportedly got upset last week when his father told him to pull up his pants at their Mary Lee Drive residence.

The Daily Mail noted that after Cody heard this, he ignored the request. Then he walked into his kitchen, retrieved a knife, and stabbed his father in the left side of his chest.

When the authorities arrived at the scene, they found the victim sitting in a pool of blood on the living room floor. The map below displays shows the neighborhood on Mary Lee Drive.

He is now being held on $75,000 bond.
