Firefighter says he was barred from 9/11 Jets game over flag
A firefighter from Peekskill says stars and stripes got him barred from a football game on Sept. 11.
Michael Viggiano says he showed up to the Jets game wearing the American flag draped over his shoulders. He says he was refused entry because flags are considered banners, which are barred from the stadium.
The game included an elaborate Sept. 11 commemoration event.
Representatives for the Jets have not yet returned a request for comment from News 12 Westchester.
