Playboy Model Veteran Taken Down by Cops after Seizing American Flag at Protest
It's a struggle over the stars and stripes, and the woman at the center is, of all things, a former Playboy model.
Michelle Manhart is an Air Force veteran who confronted student protesters at Valdasta State University in Georgia after she says they trampled on the flag.
One protester said, "That's not yours."
Manhart responded, "Actually, it is. This belongs actually to the entire United States."
Then, the scuffle with police began as she walked away with the flag and the crowd and police surrounded her. It took three officers to take her down and force her to release the flag.
INSIDE EDITION spoke to Michelle Manhart and her daughter, Anika, who shot the video. She said, "I was so tunnel-visioned on getting that flag and removing it from the situation. My goal was to get that out of the picture and let them continue with their fight."
