VERO BEACH, Florida — Pretty sure God didn’t want him to do this.
A Florida man was arrested after running up to the altar of a church and exposing himself in front of a roomful of parishioners, later explaining to cops that the “Lord told me to do it.”
The Indian River Sheriff’s office says Christopher James Frey, 48, was among the worshippers at the Church Assembly of God in Vero Beach last Wednesday evening, when he suddenly made his way up to the stage.
Turning to face the 39 people in attendance, police say Frey, “pulled down his red plaid shorts and exposed his penis to everyone in the room,” according to the criminal complaint.
Several men in the crowd rushed to the stage and forced Frey to pull his pants up and then ushered him out of the room to wait until cops arrived.
When questioned by investigators about why he did it, Frey replied: “The Lord told me to do it,” the complaint read.
He was charged with exposing his genital organs and disorderly conduct. He was released on $1,000 bond.
