A Christian radio station employee and BRISTOL, TN pastor has been charged with indecent exposure, as well as DUI and violation of the open container law.
RAM Religious WZAP-A/BRISTOL's owner AL MORRIS issued a brief statement MONDAY afternoon saying, "As many of you are aware, TOMMY TESTER, an employee of WZAP, was recently arrested in WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN. The allegations, as reported by the news media, are serious and are in no way condoned or accepted by the ownership and management of WZAP. We do not know all the details and facts concerning the arrest; but for the time being TOMMY has been relieved of his responsibilities at the station until such facts surrounding the case are determined. We pray that this matter can be quickly resolved. In the meantime, we ask you to pray for TOMMY and for WZAP."
MORRIS, who was on vacation when he first heard about the allegations and read the details in the JOHNSON CITY PRESS, added, "It's the biggest shock of my life."
