Anti-gay pastor booked on obscenity charge

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A minister known for his bullhorn-amplified protests at an annual gay festival in New Orleans' French Quarter has been arrested on an obscenity charge after two women said they saw him masturbating near a suburban playground.
The Rev. Grant Storms was booked Friday after two women reported seeing him masturbating as he sat in a van near a playground in Metairie, according to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.
The sheriff's report said Storms told deputies he was having lunch at the park and decided to urinate using a bottle instead of a restroom.
Storms' telephone line was busy during repeated attempts to call him Tuesday.
Storms was released from jail Sunday because of crowding, sheriff's spokesman John Fortunato said Tuesday.
