A pastor in Louisiana who defied stay-at-home orders and was accused of nearly hitting a protester with a bus was arrested Tuesday.

Tony Spell and a security guard at Life Tabernacle Church were named in warrants accusing them of aggravated assault in connection with an incident involving a protester.

Spell was placed under arrest and taken to his parish's jail, where he will be booked on the warrant.
