(Johnson City, Tennessee) The minister of a Baptist church has been charged with indecent exposure and driving under the influence, and police officers say he propositioned them.
Tommy Tester, 58, of Bristol, Va., was wearing a skirt when he was arrested last week after allegedly urinating in front of children at a car wash, police said.
Police also said Tester offered to perform oral sex on officers who were sent to the scene.
Authorities identified Tester as the minister of Gospel Baptist Church in Bristol and an employee of Christian radio station WZAP-AM in Bristol.
There was no immediate response Tuesday to calls to the church and Tester's home.
WZAP issued a statement Monday asking for prayers and saying Tester had been suspended during an investigation.
"We pray this matter can be quickly resolved," WZAP owner Al Morris said in the statement.
Tester was released on $1,000 bail. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 25.
