July 2, 1970 - Painted car court case

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT
On this day back in 1970, a call for peace and the beginning of 8 years of legal struggles.

Warren Sheldon of Schenectady painted red and white stripes on the roof of his '61 Chevy Bel Air (like a flag) And put a peace sign where the stars would be.

He was arrested for flag desecration under New York's general business law.
   
We interviewed him when he was released on 200 dollars bail and right after he had covered the peace symbol.
   
Sheldon eventually decided to fight with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union because he felt he did nothing wrong.
   
Sheldon and the ACLU fought the case for 8 years, eventually going to the us supreme court.
   
In 1978 the court ruled the NY law was too vague and therefore unconstitutional.July 2, 1970 - Painted car court case
