Birmingham church pastor arrested during eviction

Birmingham, AL (WBRC) - A Birmingham pastor is arrested this morning as his church was being evicted from its worship place on Carson Road. Reverend Karnie Smith was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct as items from the Walking on Water Christian church were taken out of the former Cinema Six movie theater today.

The church had fallen behind on rental payments and the two parties were not able to reach an agreement. The church held its final services at the facility yesterday. Reverend Smith was released on a $500 dollar bond.
