A selfie has landed a Colorado soldier in a lot of trouble.

Private First Class Tariqka Sheffey posted an image on Instagram with a caption saying she was hiding in her car so she didn't have to salute the flag at the end of the day.

Officials at Fort Carson have launched a probe, and her punishment could vary from loss of rank to a court martial and a 2-year prison sentence.
