Man with burning flag


Reports said a man running around downtown about 9:10 p.m. Thursday yelling at people and carrying a burning American flag was briefly detained by police.

Officers who were called found the 24-year-old Youngstown man holding the remains of a flag and a pole. Witnesses told police the man was running in and out of traffic with the flag and screaming at people. The man was booked into the Mahoning County jail but was later released after questioning by police, who said they would investigate further before pursuing any charges.
