A Boardman man said he was leaving work at General Extrusions about 3 p.m. Tuesday when another employee set fire to a flag attached to his car antenna.
The vehicle's owner extinguished the fire and confronted the co-worker, who said he would set the flag on fire the next day if it was still on the car, according to a police report.
No explanation was given for the flag burning, police said.
