    A woman was arrested for burning an American flag on an overpass over I-66 in Arlington, police say.

    Kayla Caniff, 22, was charged with property destruction after police say she burned a flag attached to a chain link fence on the N. Stafford Street overpass, north of the Ballston area, at about 11:55 p.m. Thursday. An officer saw the flag burning.

    The next day, the county fire department placed 16 flags on I-66 overpasses to honor 9/11 victims. They unfurled a giant American flag at their Fire Training Academy.

    Caniff was released on her own recognizance.
