The voice of FedEx Forum has been silenced.

The Grizzlies have fired public address announcer Rick Trotter, who is being accused of taking upskirt photos and videos of women at Downtown Church, where he was also employed, during services. Police in Memphis on Tuesday issued four warrants for his arrest on counts of photographing without consent. Trotter had been employed by the team since the 2005-06 season.

According to a statement, the church fired Trotter in late May for what it categorized as “deception and moral failures of a sexual nature.” The Grizzlies let Trotter go in July.
