CLEARWATER - A man arrested for disorderly conduct on Thanksgiving almost hit several Turkey Trot 10K runners with a Bible during a street sermon, police say.
Mark Alan Sutto, 48, was delivering a street sermon at South Lake Avenue and Nursery Road when he interfered with the event by shouting at runners, getting in their way and waving a large Bible in their path, police said.
Sutto, who is no stranger to the Pinellas County Jail, refused to stop disturbing the run even after several warnings, according to an arrest affidavit.
Here's what the police officer wrote in the complaint: The (defendant) also waved a large bible at head level with his arm extended into the roadway, nearly striking several race participants."
