The incident was captured by surveillance cameras in Jaguar Power Sports in Jacksonville, Florida.

Power came in to issue a citation for a rooftop flag display which included two US flags, one Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team flag, and a set of military flags.

According to a report by News 4 Jax, the military flags were the ones that Power stated violated the code.ch, which Power said wasn’t permitted. While delivering the citation, Power reportedly insulted a customer, who turned out to be a veteran.

“We cater to our men and women, both retired and active duty military, so it was personal,” said store manager Marcy Moyer regarding the citation. “We felt like it was a personal attack.”

As Power delivered the news, a male customer, who is a military veteran, became upset, saying that he thought it was wrong for the city to force the managers of the store to remove the flags.

After being confronted by the customer, Power got into the veteran’s face.

Speaking about the incident, Jaguar Power Sports employee Katie Klasse stated, “She says, ‘What did you do for this country?’ He says, “I took three bullets to the leg. I almost lost my life for this country. I’m retired. I’m a veteran.’”

“She gets in his face this close,” Klasse continued, “and says, ‘You did nothing for this country.’”
