North Carolina pastor who allegedly urinated on an airplane passenger has resigned his position at Catch The Fire church, according to senior leaders Murray and Ash Smith of their church, Catch The Fire. Murray and Ash Smith stated their disbelief upon hearing of Daniel Chalmers’ arrest for this Oct. 12 incident on an outbound flight from Las Vegas bound for Detroit.
Chalmers was charged with simple assault after a woman who was sleeping aboard the Delta Airlines red-eye to Detroit reported finding him relieving himself on her and screaming out in protest, prompting an off-duty police officer to detain Chalmers for possible further actions.
