Inspector suspended after she confronts Florida business for flying military flags

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A code enforcement officer and her supervisor have been suspended following a confrontation with a veteran. She issued a Florida business a warning about flying military flags.

An employee of Jaguar Power Sports in Jacksonville, Florida, took to social media to describe what happened on Monday when a wounded warrior in the store objected to the citation. Employees say the inspector told the vet he "did nothing for his country."

The inspector apologized on Facebook in a post that was later removed. In the post, she described the incident as a misunderstanding. She also said her relatives had served in the military.

Mayor Lenny Curry tells WJXT-TV he has ordered a review of what happened. He's also working to clarify city laws when it comes to displaying military flags.
