Rodney Howard-Browne, pastor of the River megachurch in Tampa, Florida, was arrested Monday for holding a crowded service in defiance of a local order that limits gatherings in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister slammed Howard-Browne at a news conference on Monday, saying his "reckless disregard for human life" not only put his congregants at risk of COVID-19 but also those who come into contact with them in the coming days.

State Attorney Andrew Warren offered up a Bible passage that Howard-Browne seemed to have ignored.
