Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioAn Air Force vet is in a dog fight in his own neighborhood over hanging the American flag outside his Draper town home. "Basically they're just trying to strong-arm me."
Kevin Capito says he's frustrated after calls, e-mails, and even legal threats to take down his flag. "That was more than insinuated. He said that would be the next step, is that they would take it down. They would pay somebody to take it down, and they would put a lien against the house."
The village town homes' Homeowners Association and management company contend it's against the rules since they own the exteriors of these town homes, and Capito never asked for permission.
Capito says he's backed by federal law, which miffed him more when he says he heard from a management company worker, "If the American flag is allowed, the swastika will have to be, too."
