A yet unnamed but soon to be revealed ‘prominent’ North Carolina Pastor has peed on a woman during a Delta flight, turning what should have been an enjoyable skip-and-a-hop into the watery trip of a nightmare.
According to reports, Alicia Beverly was flying from Las Vegas to Detroit when the dastardly incident happened, telling WJBK-TV, FOX 2 News in Detroit:
“It felt warm, like on the side of me I felt something warm. I jump up and I seen his private area out and I screamed and that woke everybody up. By that time I actually looked at him and I see him shake himself off and I’m like this man just peed on me! I looked and there was a puddle of pee in the seats!”
After her scream, the pastor was subdued by an off-duty officer flying on the same trip who was woken by the shouts. He restrained the man until landing and handed over to the FBI to be taken into custody.
Initial reports are suggesting the pastor had a bad reaction to some sleeping pills, possibly Ambien, which caused him to unzip his pants, expose himself, and pee on his seatmate. Beverly reports that he didn’t say a word to her the entire time he was relieving himself.
The North Carolina pastor who has been described as “prominent,” “white” and “well-known” was issued a court appearance for misdemeanor assault and released, according to Mara Schneider of the FBI’s Detroit office, saying:
“Until he appears in front of a judge and therefore gets formally charged, we will not be releasing his name.”
As far as who he could be, Wikipedia has a list of the largest churches in NC, with their associated pastors, some more prominent than others. It may be one of these men, or someone completely different, but odds are it is someone associated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
Given that the pastor was white, and Beverly is black, we imagine if it is revealed to be an SBC pastor, that certain obstreperous elements within the SBC and the echelons of #BigEva will have a racially-fueled field day with such a revelation. Though with the severity of the episode, it seems evident that such actions would only be done by the pastor as a result of mental illness or a drug-induced haze, and not out of sexual perversion and a sound mind.
