Fist fight in church after family save pew seats
CHRUCH is not all about belting out the first lines to All Things Bright And Beautiful and trying to pray the kids into a Church school. It’s about fighting the good fight.
To Utah’s Meadows Ward, where at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for a missionary farewell and a baby blessing. A family there to see the blessing were sat in a pew. The parents were reserving seats for other family members. That did not included Wayne Dodge, 51. He sat in one of the reserved seats. Things were said.
Dodge and a man in the family group took it outside.
Says Weber County Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Lowther:
“(Dodge) ended up throwing a couple of punches and striking this individual. He had some blood coming from his face, so he went inside the church to clean up. And when he exited the church, (Dodge) was in his car. I guess there was another confrontation.”
After which Dodge (and what price nominative determinism?) hit the man with his vehicle.
“Ultimately, the victim ended up on the hood of the car. [Dodge] exited the vehicle and some other people that attended the church service restrained him. And I don’t know how, but he ultimately ended up in the bishop’s office until law enforcement arrived.”
Dodge was arrested.
