The pastor of a Tampa megachurch who held worship services on Sunday — packing hundreds, if not thousands of congregants into the building despite social-distancing guidelines — is now a wanted man, as the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has issued a warrant for his arrest.

As reported by The Inquisitr, an untold number of worshipers showed up for services on Sunday morning at The River Church in Tampa, described as a "megachurch," a term that typically refers to Protestant congregations of 2,000 or more people. Indeed, it was business as usual at the church, as congregants were "squeezed in like sardines," as a reporter described it.

The church's pastor, Rodney Howard-Browne, had been clear that he wasn't going to let a worldwide pandemic stop him from holding Sunday services.
