A Tampa Bay Buccaneers season ticket holder says he and his family were kicked out of the stadium because he hung an American flag from an upper-deck
rail -- something he says he's done since the 2001 terrorist attacks.
But the team said it wasn't the flag that got Ken Hill of Pinellas Park and his friends removed from Raymond James Stadium during Sunday's game, but
his belligerence toward the security officers who asked him to remove it. Hill denies mistreating the officers.
Hill, 40, had been hanging the flag from the third-level railing since Sept. 11, 2001. He said that once before was asked to remove the flag, but
otherwise he had been allowed to hang it.
