Iowa City resident Andrew Alemao attempted to burn a flag Friday on the Iowa City Ped Mall as an act of protest against the Trump inauguration. Alemao was interrupted by a bystander who disapproved of the act and wrestled with him, trying to take the flag away.
Police arrived quickly and diffused the situation. As of publication, the Iowa City Police Department had not responded to a request for additional information. No charges appear to have been filed at this time.
