Connecticut man ordered to take down Confederate flag

PLAINVILLE, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man faces charges for allegedly using a Confederate flag to harass his African American neighbors.

Prosecutor Brian Preleski says the conflict between the Plainville family and 49-year-old Anthony Esposito came to a head when he draped himself in the Confederate flag and ran up and down his driveway while the neighbors' 12-year-old daughter waited for the school bus.

The Hartford Courant reports that a Confederate flag was still flying at Esposito's house Monday after a judge ordered no such flag be flown within 250 yards of the neighbors' property.

Preleski says Esposito "is a self-avowed racist, sex offender, convicted felon, and claims to have ties to the Ku Klux Klan."

Esposito remains free on disorderly conduct and breach of peace charges.
