A woman who confronted Brooklyn Bishop Lamor Whitehead in the middle of his sermon has been charged, police said Monday.
Tarsha Howard is charged with trespassing and disrupting a religious service after the Sunday clash that erupted after Whitehead told her to stop videotaping the service, police said.
Howard, 47, was awaiting arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court Monday.
Whitehead was also taken into custody but told the Daily News police let him go when they figured out what really happened.
“They lock me up in front of my children, in front of my wife, in front of my church,” Whitehead said. “They publicly embarrassed me and then they drop all the charges after two hours and apologize to me.”
Whitehead was preaching at Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministry on Remsen Ave. near Avenue D in Canarsie on Sunday when two women walked into the church in the middle of his sermon, he said.
Whitehead — who was robbed at gunpoint during a sermon over the summer — said the women entered “the same way it happened when my church got robbed.”
