Bishop Whitehead denies suffocating woman during church service
Brooklyn Bishop Lamor Whitehead is once again at the center of controversy after an incident with a woman was broadcast live during his church service. Bishop Whitehead, who chairs Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn, clears the air and speaks out. As we reported earlier, things appeared to heat up between Bishop Whitehead and the unidentified woman before he was seen grabbing her by the back of the neck and escorting her away. He took to his Instagram Live and claimed the woman tried to attack his family and denies claims he suffocated her.
The Bishop claims the woman was threatening and began charging his wife, Asia Whitehead, and their eight-month-old daughter. During the live, he said he had to keep them out of harm’s way and had more video to show the whole story. Following the incident, video surfaced of officers talking to Bishop Whitehead, and reports began that he had been arrested; however, according to TMZ, that is not true. Reports say they haven’t booked or processed him yet, and it’s unclear if he will. Law enforcement sources say that if the Bishop has not been arrested now this late in the day, he is unlikely to be called, period.
However, it looks like something happened with the NYPD because Bishop Whitehead called the authorities on Instagram.
He wrote, “Join me live at 10pm tonight! @nypd You can’t lock me up and say, oops, we’re sorry! Stay with me tomorrow 9/19/22 right across from the 69th Police Station @12Noon 9720 Foster Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11236-2123 Roommates, what do you think?
