A New York City woman was arrested in South Carolina after she was accused of breaking two Confederate flags off of a parked truck.
The 22-year-old Brooklyn woman and her father were both arrested after the alleged vandalism in Charleston's historic Battery on Saturday afternoon, The Post and Courier reports.
Authorities told the newspaper that the South Carolina Secessionist Party was putting on its weekly display of Southern flags when the 22-year-old walking by broke the flags off the truck and ran off.
The party's founder gave chase but was allegedly held back by the woman's 50-year-old father, the Post and Courier reports.
The woman later told police that she broke the flags because they upset her, according to the report.
The party, which is an activist group that apparently came into being in the months after the Confederate flag was removed from the South Carolina State House's front lawn following the 2015 Charleston church massacre, posted about the incident on its Facebook page.
"The moral of the story? Make the Yankees pay for their crimes when they come to our State, break our laws and attempt to dishonor our ancestors," the group said in the post.
The daughter and father were both booked into a Charleston jail and were released on bail the next day.
