Florida Pastor Arrested For Holding Church Services

A Florida pastor is in trouble for holding church services during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne was arrested Monday after ignoring social distancing orders, and holding a packed service at his Tampa Bay megachurch the day before. 

The Hillsborough County Sheriff said his "reckless disregard for human life" put hundreds in his congregation at risk. 

The county had prohibited gatherings of ten or more. Howard-Browne was charged with unlawful assembly and violation of public health rules.
