You can thank Texas v. Johnson for this. In that case the SCOTUS ruled that flag burning was protected under the 1st Amendment as Freedom of Speech. The police would not arrest him because the "Property Destruction" was of such a small monetary value that it would only have merited a ticket. Basically, the most they could get from him is the cost to replace the flag.
