Florida pastor flees naked after being caught with man's wife, cops say
Video shows O. Jermaine Simmons asking for congregation for forgiveness
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A prominent Florida pastor was forced to flee a house naked after a woman's husband came home to find him having sex with his wife, police said.
The Tallahassee Democrat reported that police documents said a woman's husband found her in bed with the Rev. O. Jermaine Simmons in the middle of the afternoon on Jan. 17.
The woman told police that her husband yelled that he was going to kill Simmons, who fled the apartment naked and hid behind a nearby fence, officials said.
The husband took the pastor's clothes, wallet and car keys and later agreed to return the items after negotiations with police.
Video posted online shows Simmons asking for forgiveness from his congregation at Tallahassee's Jacob Chapel, saying, "You cannot defend sin."
