The Louisiana pastor who was arrested for the aggravated assault was released and is planning to continue to conduct services during the pandemic
Last weekend, Life Tabernacle pastor in Baton Rouge, Tony Spell, was arrested for trying to crush one Protestant. The protester for several days peacefully opposed the church with the sign “CAUTION: Coronavirus incubator. Do not enter. You may die. ” After a couple of hours, Spell was released and again announced a government conspiracy and with intentions to continue serving despite the death of one of the parishioners.
The victim of the attack was Trey Bennett, who was twice exposed to danger from an aggressive pastor and another white pickup driver. The identity of the second man has not been established, the police are searching.
“And he [man in white truck] was going very fast. He just pulled over at me and turned into the church. That was much faster than what Tony Spell was doing when he drove the bus at me,” said Bennett.
According to Spell, Bennett bothered the church for a week, and the pastor also said that the Protestant repeatedly shouted “vulgarities” and “shoots obscene finger gestures”.
To date, the rally's obscene behavior has not been confirmed, Bennett added that there was nothing like this, he simply warned the parishioners about the danger.
Literally taking a step from the cell, Spell began to tell that subsequent services would not be canceled.
In spite of his excuse, Spell said that he gathered a crowd of kids that morning to feed him. But in a telephone conversation with WAFB9, Spell said he intended to confront Bennett.
“I was pulling in from my bus route, picking up black children who haven’t eaten because of this sinister policy that has closed schools,” the pastor said. “I was going to approach this gentleman and ask him to leave.”
Tony Spell has already gained an extremely poor reputation in society due to the fact that he did not close the church during the raging pandemic of the coronavirus. Over the past few months, Life Tabernacle Church has received several thousand parishioners, for some services bus convoys of 27-28 buses with 2-3 thousand people were organized.
