You don’t believe me, check out this story.

Red Wings fan Lena Sinishtaj is sitting in jail right now because she let her emotions get the best of her. Before Game 7 of the Red Wings/Lightning playoff series in Tampa, a giant Lightning flag was being held up and passed around in the arena.

Sinishtaj — a 35-year-old Michigan resident wasn’t feeling that — and decided that the flag would burn once it reached her.
