Brooklyn pastor arrested mid-service after physical confrontation with woman in church
Bishop Lamor Miler-Whitehead, the Brooklyn pastor who was robbed of about a million dollars in jewelry during a live-streamed service, is speaking out after he was arrested following a confrontation with a woman during his Sunday sermon.
Whitehead posted surveillance video of the altercation on his Instagram page. In the video, a woman is seen walking near the pulpit where Whitehead was preaching.
The situation escalated into physical altercation, and police arrested both of them. The woman is accused of disturbing a religious service and trespassing among other charges.
Officials say the problem started after the woman was asked to stop recording the service but refused. The woman started to antagonize the pastor before approaching him, according to the NYPD.
