FOX Nation reported:

A Georgia man was slapped with a ticket and threatened with jail time after he refused to remove an American flag that’s been flying outside his business for more than thirty years.

An Albany code enforcement officer alleged that Tom Gieryic’s flag was in violation of the city’s sign ordinance. The standard size American flag was posted on a pole outside Gieryic’s automotive repair shop.

“It’s been there for 30 years,” Gieryic told Fox News. “She told me my flag was in the city’s right of way.”
