Urbana Man Files Lawsuit Over Flag Burning Arrest

(Urbana, IL)  —  An Urbana man is suing four local police officers after being arrested in July for burning an American flag and posting photos on Facebook.  Bryton Mellott and the ACLU filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Urbana federal court.  The suit claims his arrest on July 4th challenges Illinois’ flag-desecration law.
