A transgender woman was arrested in New Jersey after trying to set fire to a pro-police flag at the Philadelphia Pride Parade, according to Fox News.

An 18-year-old named Ryan Segin tried to pour lighter fluid on a Thin Blue Line Flag but police stopped her before she could light it.

Segin was charged with attempted arson, causing a catastrophe and reckless endangerment of another person among other offenses.

According to a report from NJ.com, a Philadelphia police spokesman said, “It’s not an issue with the flag. The issue is being in a crowd of people and trying to pour lighter fluid on it. It has nothing to do with the flag. It could have been paper.”
