Central pastor Tony Spell has again defied the coronavirus stay-at-home order and a house arrest order by preaching at a religious service Sunday morning, our media partners at The Advocate report.

Spell was seen at Life Tabernacle Church where congregants sang and held signs reading "I stand with Pastor Spell," the newspaper reports.

An ankle monitor could be seen through the cuffs of his pants, the Advocate reports.

Spell was arrested earlier this week and booked into parish prison on misdemeanor counts after a protester accused the Pentecostal preacher of nearly hitting him on Sunday with one of the church's school buses along Hooper Road.
