Church service gone mad? Simone Moore, the minister of music at New Welcome Baptist Church in St. Elmo, Ala., went berserk and tasered Rev. Darryl Riley, who had just fired him and gave him is last paycheck. Moore reportedly disputed the amount. The fracas led to Deacon Harvey Hunt pulling out his knife and stabbing Moore’s mother, Agolia Moore.
Agolia Moore, who suffered a gash on her arm that required 19 stitches, claimed church leaders ganged up on her son when he was fired. ”They owed him,” Agolia said. “He asked them for his money. That was the big thing right there, wasn’t no more or no less.”
Simone Moore, 46, surrendered to cops late Tuesday and was charged with third-degree assault, the Press-Register reported. Hunt, who is also facing an assault charge, has not yet turned himself in, the Press-Register says.
Riley told the paper Moore Tased him twice on his left arm and bashed him in the head with a money box, opening up two cuts that required 32 stitches. Moore flew into a rage when he eyed his final paycheck and demanded an extra $600, Riley added.
All I can say to this is, Jesus, please take the wheel of the bus at New Welcome Baptist Church. These people are behaving like common criminals. Simone Moore is described as a self proclaimed R&B artist, who ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate. He is a teacher in Mobile County. Some role model for kids.
