One of the protestors behind the flag-burning protest at Valdosta State University last month has been arrested for possessing a gun on campus. The student, Eric Sheppard, 22, led a protest where the U.S. flag and a bible were burned and trampled. In a video, Sheppard said, “I’m a terrorist toward liars and those who are weak. So yes I am a terrorist toward white people.”
The incident gained national attention when Michelle Manhart, a military veteran, (and in an odd twist, a former playboy model) took the flag from the protestors and was eventually arrested by nearby police. The charges were later dropped.
Soon after the protest, police found a bag belonging to Sheppard which contained a handgun. Sheppard, who had left the scene, has had a warrant for his arrest ever since.
