SHEBOYGAN FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- A pastor and parishioner have been cited by police for shooting an arrow during a church service. The pastor asked to have the arrow shot across the front of the church during a recent service at Pentecostals of Sheboygan County as a 'teaching tool.'
As the parishioner prepared to shoot the arrow with his bow, one man stood up and objected, telling the pastor it was unsafe and illegal. Parishioners said the pastor told the man to be quiet and sit down.
When the man objected a second time, the pastor asked him to leave. He did and called police.
The parishioner was cited for using a missile indoors and the pastor was cited for aiding and abetting. Both were fined $109.
