The video shot by Michelle Manhart's daughter doesn't show the seizing of the flag from the demonstrators.
"Michelle Manhart, a former Air Force staff sergeant, was arrested in Georgia after taking an American flag away from a group of Valdosta State University students. Before her arrest, students accused the police of treating Manhart with deference because of her race."
According to WaPo Manhart was not charged because neither the students or the University wanted to press charges.
