Ole Miss Student Arrested for Possession of State Flag
Dylan Wood, a third-year Ole Miss student told Breitbart Texas he was simply enjoying the game when a security officer approached him and said he had to take his mini version of the Mississippi flag from him because it was larger than what the stadium allows.
Wood said he agreed to leave the game and exited the Ole Miss stadium without any issues. Once outside, though, Wood said a security guard told him he would have to agree never to bring the state flag with him to another Ole Miss game or run the risk of being arrested. When Wood asked if he would truly be arrested for carrying the state’s flag, prompting the officer to spin him around and arrest him on the spot, taking him off to the local jail.
Although Wood’s flag was slightly larger than the permitted size, he said the flag issue has never been a problem in the past six years he has been attending Ole Miss football games.
“This was never a problem until Ole Miss stopped playing ‘Dixie,’” Woods told Breitbart Texas.
