Pastor Tony Spell released From Prison

Pastor Tony Spell who is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon had been released from prison. He was taken into custody Tuesday morning, April 21.

Spell has previously been charged with multiple misdemeanor counts of defying an order by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards that prohibits gatherings of more than ten people during the coronavirus outbreak.

Spell turned himself into the Central Police Department where he was arrested on one count of aggravated assault and improper backing, according to a post on the Department’s Facebook page. Within hours, Spell had posted bond and was released.

Outside the jail Spell addressed some of his congregation, telling them his arrest was “a trap.”

“A half a dozen officers handcuffed me, put me in the back of the car and booked me into East Parish Baton Rouge Prison,” Spell said.
