Pastor Tased, Woman Stabbed During Church Brawl

Local 15, August 8, 2011

Two men–including a minister of music–facing charges for a church brawl.

Apparently Simone Moore couldn’t take it anymore last night, after finding out he was losing his job at the New Welcome Baptist Church in the St. Elmo community.

{snip} The pastor handed him his last paycheck, and that’s when deputies say Moore got mad–pulled out a taser and tased the pastor.

A huge fight broke out and Moore’s mother, Agolia, even got involved. Investigators say one of the deacons, Harvey Hunt, stabbed her in the arm.


We are learning about those involved. A quick check online revealed the minister of music, Simone Moore, is an R&B singer and he ran for the U.S. Senate.
