Deplorable: North Carolina Pastor Daniel Chalmers has been arrested after urinating on a sleeping woman during a Delta airline flight earlier this month.
When confronted by police, Chalmers first denied that he had done anything wrong, and also denied that he had been drinking. But when police smelled alcohol on him, the “good Christian man” admitted that he had had a few drinks.
WBT News reports:
Detroit police have identified Daniel Chalmers as the North Carolina pastor who is accused of peeing on a passenger aboard a Delta Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Detroit on Oct. 12.
The unidentified female victim was said to let out “a blood curdling scream” as Chalmers relieved himself on her.
Winston-Salem Journal reports:
The North Carolina pastor accused of urinating on a Delta airline passenger two weeks ago has been identified, authorities said Tuesday.
Daniel Chalmers was arrested by the Wayne Metro Airport police in Detroit after the Delta flight landed at the Detroit Metro Airport on Oct. 12, according to a police report.
The NC Beat explains the situation:
It was an early morning flight for Alicia Beverly, the woman listed as the victim in this incident, when she was awakened by pee let loose on her by a so-called man of God, who has now been identified.
Beverly said she was in the back of the Delta airplane sleeping next to her sister coming from Las Vegas headed to Detroit when all of a sudden, she felt a warm liquid splashing on her.
WBT News notes:
According to the police report, Chalmers smelled of alcohol after being detained on the flight. The victim says she “woke up feeling something warm on her body and when she looked up to her right, she observed Mr. Chalmers standing next to her shaking his exposed penis. (She) stated that she then noticed that Mr. Chalmers urinated on her and she started screaming.”
According to the police report, Chalmers denied peeing on the sleeping woman, at one point telling police:
Whatever it is she is accusing me of, I didn’t do it.
According to the arresting officer, when Chalmers was told what he was accused of doing, the “good Christian man” replied:
I’m a pastor, that is out of my character and I didn’t do it.
Chalmers and his wife, Shara Lea Chalmers, lead Love Wins Ministries in Raleigh. Chalmers also is on staff at Catch the Fire Raleigh-Durham church, according to the Charlotte Observer. The pastor was cited for simple assault. His court date is unknown. The FBI is also investigating the incident.
Bottom line: North Carolina Pastor Daniel Chalmers has been arrested after urinating on a sleeping woman during a Delta airline flight earlier this month.
