Man Arrested For Burning and Urinating On Bible
MAN ARRESTED FOR BURNING BIBLE
Arizona police has arrested a man for allegedly burning and urinating on a Bible called himself the 'Dark Lord' when the cops came to get him.
Police were called to a Christian homeless shelter on Thursday night in the city of Prescott, Arizona, USA, after reports a man was burning something on the front step.
When they arrived they found 22-year-old Eric Minerault standing on the steps. He was dressed in black, wearing a long black and red robe and a pentagram necklace according to the police arrest report.
The officers noticed a Bible on the ground next to him, which was wet and appeared to have been burnt.
In a statement, Lieutenant Ken Morley wrote: "He [Minerault] said that he chose the mission because he believed it was a place of Christian worship and he was cursing the Christians.
The officers asked him why and he said because he is the Dark Lord."
Minerault was arrested and taken into the Yavapai County Detention Center on suspicion of one count of unlawful symbol burning stemming from the incident at the Gospel Rescue Mission.
