GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – Football teams across the Tri-Cities battled on the field Friday night, but something else caught the attention of fans in Greene County.

FLAG SNAPPED PIC00000000

At the South Greene and West Greene game our cameras caught a South Greene fan running with a Confederate flag through the West Greene student section, when all of a sudden someone else takes the flag out of his hand and snaps the flag pole in half.

In the video, you can see people criticizing the person with the flag as they move back to their section on the other side of the bleachers.

South Greene High School’s mascot is the Rebels.

West Greene beat South Greene 22-21.
