Last week, Erick mentioned the nutty pastor in Warner Robins protesting the mascot of a local high school.
The pastor got himself arrested today:
Warner Robins police say they arrested Pastor Donald Crosby Monday morning as he and a group of supporters protested Warner Robins High School’s “Demon” nickname and mascot.
Warner Robins police spokeswoman Tabitha Pugh says 36-year-old Crosby was arrested after police told him he didn’t have a picketing permit, as required by the city.
Crosby and the group set up the protest outside the school on the opening day of classes because of their opposition to the school’s Demon team nickname.
She says officers asked Crosby and the group to leave, but he refused and was arrested. Others in the group dropped the protest.
Pugh says Crosby is charged with picketing without a license and disorderly conduct for not leaving when asked. Crosby was released from the Houston County jail on bond.
I think his cause is ridiculous, but it’s absurd that anyone would be arrested for exercising their right to free speech.
