Police: Florida pastor caught with man’s wife, flees naked

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A police report says a prominent Florida pastor was forced to run out of a house naked after a woman’s husband came home and found her having sex with the pastor.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports police documents show a woman’s husband found her in bed with Pastor 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. 

The husband took the pastor’s clothes, wallet and car keys and later agreed to return the items following negotiations with police.

Video posted online shows Simmons asking for forgiveness from his congregation at Tallahassee’s Jacob Chapel, saying “you cannot defend sin.”
