Don't mess with Texas ... or at least one Dallas Cowboys fan in northwest Washington.

A man grabbed a Dallas Cowboys flag from a car that was stopped at a traffic light on L Street near Connecticut Avenue, threw it on the ground and was promptly punched in the face once the driver got out of his car.

One witness told the Washington Post she saw a "big, tall man walk up to this guy and hit him across the head." Then other witnesses said he walked back toward his car, picked up what presumably was the flag, and drove off.

As for the Cowboys hater? Well, he was down for the count.

"He was out cold for a good five minutes or so," one witness told the Post.
