NEW YORK - Fire Marshals have arrested a man for allegedly vandalizing an American flag hanging from an ambulance in Manhattan.

The FDNY shared a Facebook photo of 50-year-old Nicholas Leobold, charged with criminal mischief.

He's accused of vandalizing the flag two weeks ago back on January 25.

Leobold allegedly cut the flag in two and left it in a puddle on Second Avenue and East 9th Street.

It's illegal under federal law to knowingly mutilate the American flag.
