WASHINGTON (AP) - Police said a man was punched in the face after grabbing a Dallas Cowboys flag from a car in downtown Washington. D.C. police Lt. Eric Hayes said someone snatched the flag from a car as it was stopped in traffic Tuesday evening and apparently threw it to the ground.
Police and witnesses said that by the time the man crossed the street, someone exited the car and struck him in the face before driving away.
Police said the incident may have been motivated by team loyalty, or the motorist might not have wanted anyone to touch his car.
Police said a man was taken from the scene to be treated for a bruised forehead.
