From WDEF NEWS 12:
The leader of a popular youth ministry in Birmingham has pleaded guilty to a charge of attempting to impersonate a police officer. 28-year-old Matt Pitt was sentenced to two years on probation on Wednesday, fined $1,000 and required to make a public apology.
Pitt was arrested in May after flashing a badge and telling Calera police that he was a deputy from Jefferson County. Pitt was originally pulled over for flashing blue lights at motorists on Interstate 65, forcing them to pull over before speeding past them.
Oh, I have to admit that I have always wanted to do that. I'd pick on rich people in big flash cars, bicyclists and bishops.
However, "The Parable of the Naughty Youth Minister" teaches me that having lots of fun, even at the expense of money grabbing account executives, latex clad lawbreakers and Oxbridge graduates, is not always the Christian way.
