A ‘woke’ and ‘multi-ethnic’ church planter working for the North American Mission Board – who goes by the hip-hop name “Checkerz” (we kid you not) was arrested for getting downright gangsta in traffic.
[Baptist News Global] A Southern Baptist church planter in Louisiana faces up to 15 years in prison stemming from a road-rage incident in which he allegedly fired a handgun at an 18-wheeler.
The Louisiana State Bureau of Investigation on Feb. 12 arrested 47-year-old Christopher Williams of Baton Rouge on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated criminal damage to property, illegal carrying and discharge of weapons and reckless operation of a vehicle. The most serious charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, and the least serious is a misdemeanor.
Police said the driver of a tractor trailer called police shortly before 9 a.m. on Feb. 11 complaining that another motorist had shot at his eastbound vehicle on Interstate 10 near Gramercy, Louisiana, in St. James Parish.
The trucker said erratic driving by the driver of a black Hyundai Sonata caused a minor crash, and after the accident the driver of the Hyundai produced a handgun and fired it from the driver’s side window. The trucker said gunfire struck the front of the truck, and the other driver fled the scene.
