Atheist arrested at School Board meeting
Polk County School Board meeting got off to an abrasive start when two Atheists of Florida members mounted a protest to a prayer invocation and one was arrested. “They started taking flash photos and talked. They disrupted the invocation and continued to interrupt,” said school attorney Wes Bridges. “The board chair [Kay Fields] asked them to leave and they refused.”
According to a Bartow Police Department report written by Detective Sgt. David Wyant, John Kieffer had become loud and talked over the invocation. Once the invocation was over, he walked to the stage in front of the school board members, turned to the audience and began yelling his opposition to the prayer.
. . . While being processed, Kieffer was found to be in possession of a white pill in his pocket that he was unable to produce a prescription for.
He was subsequently charged with resisting an officer without force, disorderly conduct and possession of drugs without a prescription. Wachs was given a trespass warning and instructed she could no longer step onto any school grounds.
