Authorities arrested a couple Thursday after they were caught having sex inside an Evans movie theater.

Claude Lamar Harris Jr., 31, of Honors Way in Martinez, and Angela Prater Veale, 43, of Galahad Way in Augusta, were charged with public indecency.

At about 3:30 p.m., a manager of the Evans 14 Cinemas told a deputy that a couple was having sex inside one of the theaters, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's Office incident report.

The manager said several employees saw Harris and Veale having sex and flicked the lights in hopes of stopping them.The theater was not playing the movie the pair purchased tickets to see, according to the report.

The manager escorted the deputy to the theater, where the deputy saw the pair having sex on the floor.The deputy told the lovers to get dressed and they were arrested.


Harris is listed as working for New Life Worship Center, while Veale is employed by WJBF-TV, according to the report.

Harris and Veale were released from the Columbia County Detention Center Thursday evening after each posted a $1,600 bond, according to sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

KEEP YOUR MOUTHS OFF!

Let me tell a lot of you something, KEEP YOUR MOUTHS OFF OF HIM! First for you all who don't know him, who is without sin let him cast the first stone! Some of you don't know him and as soon as you read the story your so quick to judge really not knowing what's factual (I don't care who posted this story!), you just take it and run with it!? that's wrong. For you all who do (Former Members/Current Members), how dare you have the audacity to put your mouths on God's people. I don't care what you think or heard, you pray for them and after you pray for them ask God to come into your own hearts and life's and deliver you out of your own bondage and from your own sins. But when you yourselves are sexed up, sexed out hood rats, with baby daddy's/mommas everywhere and some of you not even knowing who your baby daddy's are if this be the case. Then yea you would throw some crap up her about go former member and post past issues which was all setup anyway. I pray that God have mercy on all your souls, and I pray that you get saved and get rid of all the jealousy and hatred before its to late for you. I know this family personally and I stand with them, Claude is a personal friend of mine and I pray for him and their strength and encouragement. These are good people and they are Gods people and I love them very much. And unless you live with them, labor with them on a day to day basis, then keep your mouths off of them. Especially about where they live and what they drive because you have no idea what your talking about! and if you keep talking about him/them then whoa be it unto your own houses. God don't like ugly and as for that karma you was talking about (I like to refer to it as God's Judgment), its coming right back at cha if you keep running your mouths!

Remember 1 Chronicles 16:22 - Touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm

He was a Youth Minister -- Is This "Church" for Real ??!!

I read the article highlighted above. You've got to be kidding !! A "Youth Minister" that packs 'heat', and then pops off a round or two ?? What in the heck, kind of church you running ? Wonder if they get non-profit status? If it is truthful about 1.3 M house, Range Rovers, and Bentleys, I have to wonder about justifying their tax status. And I have to question the sanity of the "church" members that would contribute to an enterprise of this caliber.

BRAINWASHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just waiting on one of those cult members to grace our presence so that EVERYONE can see what it is we are speaking on as a former "cult" member. First of all a Christian wouldnt be on here throwing scriptures they would be at home on their knees intercessing for this pervert and ask God to lead them to a new and safe church home. I know him and nine times out of ten you too... very well. Ghetto?! Little girl..I think not. You have gotten me confused with another one of your many enemies, children and baby daddies?!...I THINK NOT! Prayer was in order the first time you made the media as a cult, but this time action needs to be taken and it will. See you have already been stripped of your COGIC name..now its time to be stripped of the right to label yourselves as Christians before man and before God. This type of behavior is what make perverts like him feel its ok to prey on women time and time again. Next time it maybe YOUR daughter..then what? Will you let them brainwash you to say...."She got what she deserved" or "She provoked him with her beauty"....WAKE UP! YOU ARE ENCOURAGING A PERVERT TO STRIKE AGAIN! Get it through your head...he was caught redhanded and taken into custody..bottomline...HE DID IT! Have mercy on your weak minds. Why would I be jealous of him? He still cohabitates with Mom and Dad which may been one of his reasons for this very strange crime he committed. Im jealous of the members because if I had the income some of them are blessed with..I would not give it away to these lowlife hustlers because thats what they are and I must respect the hustle..it is very profitable..look at the houses and the cars... but they have people like you going around defending perverts... Im no longer ok with that..I have a daughter and from the time I had her I have feared perverts like him ever coming in contact with her so this situation kind of hits close to home because just that easy he could have preyed on my child..only God knows what else has been done that hasnt been brought to the light..FYI: If and when I do decide to get sexed up....IT WONT BE ANYTHING I SHARE WITH THE PUBLIC! (hmmmph...and you call yourselves Christians..THE VERY REASON WHY I LABEL MYSELF SPIRITUAL AND NOT CHRISTIAN! A FREAKIN DISGRACE!)

i love it when the zebra shows his stripes. so much fun to sit back and wait for it. 'Cuz you know it's comin'.

perhaps the whole issue here is that these two COULDN'T keep their mouths off each other. ROFL

Sorry, I did the cult church thing. Not fallin' for it a second time. And really, this has nothing to do with church or money. These two violated a law with public indecency, exposure and fornication. There won't be a need for a "higher power" judge to indict these two and hammer out a sentence.

chile please.....

This story is getting way out

This story is getting way out of control. I don't understand how someone could say the story is not factual.......How could the media get this story wrong?? are they saying the theater employees, police AND then media set them up? Highly doubt that. I have a child too... And what if my child and I walked in that theater and saw what was happening???? Or any child for that matter. This crime needs to be taken seriously whether its a youth minister, doctor, lawyer, homeless man, CEO of a company, you get my drift.

My baby's daddy

Is this safe movie house sex? So will his congregation give him the standing ovation that Crefro Dollar got? Just how cesspool low can we go?

Former Member

Lol....

I love that people get to read all this...I want to keep you talking drummer girl..You have said more than enough already. People see and know exactly what kind of church you people are running. You thinking you are helping in his defense but at the same time hurting because yes people in important places are starting to question issues about this church that goes a little bigger than these charges. So I agree with you...piano boy getting his freak on with camera girl at the movies maybe least of preacher man and preacher woman problems...LITTLE DRUMMER GIRL. When the next story post..I will be here like the zebra with stripes waiting to battle it out with you again....til next time LIL DRUMMER GIRL.

You all are right!!!!!!!!

Each and every last one of you are right. Thats my point...Its disgusting and they both should be labeled as sex offenders because the movie theater is a business open to children. This matter has gotten out of hand and I apologize to all who must see and read, but everyone is entitled their own opinions.... WRONG IS WRONG I dont care who do it. This situation should be handled accordingly. Just make them both sex offenders and they wouldnt be tempted to go in a place they are banned and do perverted things. Not a day of jail and problem solved..EVERYBODY IS HAPPY...at least as a parent it would make me feel better. I hope they dont have children..there is no telling what things their poor little eyes have seen.

poor drummer girl still brainwashed

For your information I'm married and this matter has nothing to do with me. Atleast if there are a few ladies who had babys out of wedlock at least they are sure of their sexuality and didn't make the dollar paper for not using the church money to go get knocked up. How could you throw a stone for a so called stone thrown. You just said don't talk about him but you just ridiculed someone for having kids. Sounds like their not the only ones sexed up cause he must of went behind the veil cause that thang was toooooo good and he was burning with lust if he had no respect for himself and especially children. I know they are a nonprofit cause they hold voting polls their. So yes they are government funded. And they have had people paying for a building that has never and will never be built because their too busy in other peoples W-2's making sure they give all their money. M + M= M MEMBERS + MONEY= MINISTRY THAT IS THEIR MOTO. AND THE PASTORS GET A RAISE IN SALARY EVERY YEAR!!!!! NONE OF THEM HAVE JOBS

Range Rover, Bently, Mercades

It makes no since to have everyone else paying your car and house note these people are true wolfs and they prey on the sheep of God. They have stoned people for real and beat the young lady up , threw rocks @ the window of the ladys car and when they went to court they had all the church with them lie under oath in court so they wouldn't get in trouble. Someone needs to call Federal Bearue of Investigations. Cause only people who actually work deserve to be rewarded with cars and places to live a man who doesn't work doesn't eat. Or either the man who doesn't work takes advantage of those who work. False prophets and appostles. All about the money they even have people throwing money @ their feet like they are strippers. They practice mind control and if it doesn't stop these people will perish like the congregation of Pastor Jim Jones. By the way drummer girl don't drink the coolaid you will get boils and himroids

I do pity this family....so much goes on in the house of God it's ridiculous! I remember fighting at the alter, embarrassing chior members in front of the church for not making functions, people in the parking lot keying cars, throwing stones, even coming in bible study mid service fussing, cussing and carrying on. The members that are faithful are under something kinda hold....may God bless them and lead them in the right direction.

Augusta Georgia Cost Of living vrs Salary of Community

No one makes barely enough to support paying for a million dollar house for another person to stay in look up those statistics of the community. I bet if you were to look up these things and compare and contrast you will see that no one can afford this and I'm like Moses let the people go!

cussing and fussing

So true and when they threw stones @ other people did you say Amen or did you say Touch not my anoited and do the prophets no harm. Last time I checked nobody touched him but he was touching girls in the church and now this pervert! And if you take up for him it sounds like you wanted to go watch the movie too.

they was doing the cupid shuffle

Gettin down on the flo! Like a pimp! Yes everyone knows the drummer girl. And yes he had a woman and yes she was married! A Married woman!!!!!! Claude's mother told all the woman in church "y'all ho*$ want my son." That's wrong and since its him its not okay to talk about it? Don't defend him cause his sin will show kids that he was right. And it is not fair cause when someone does something they. Have to sit down but not him the church has to pay his car note. You wasn't wit him PREACHING IN THE GYMN LMAO ROTF!

You Sure Are Thirsty!

Wow Former Member didn't know you cared! I would never stoop to your low level or ever give you the satisfaction of getting a rise out of me. I meant everything I said in my (1 Comment..."KEEP YOUR MOUTH OFF") I don't have to keep coming on her like the scum of the earth running people in the ground to make myself feel good about whatever issues you obviously are dealing with. But as thirsty as you are I'm sure your probably going to have comments following this post to. Its obvious you don't have anything better to do with your time but sit in front of a computer screen all day gathering and conjuring up mess to keep some crap going, how low, stupid and simple minded can one get. I mean really!? where do you find the time to work or do anything productive, useful or with purpose in your life? O I forgot your to busy doing your dirt on here (wonder if Columbia County News Time is paying you/yall for this?...I think not!) and as far as my username goes that's just it...they asked for a U.S.E.R.N.A.M.E not my real name "Such Ignorance!" You think I put that up there to hide my identity? my username speaks for itself and anybody who knows me knows that I got that name because I've been known to HIT-HARD! Yea you'll probably take that out of context to, but that just goes to show that you really don't know who I am. But Its ok, its to be expected from someone like you. Someone who hides behind a computer screen using names like "Former Member" REALLY!...LOL!, if you so bad and bold, got any type of backbone or dignity how about you identify yourself and let these people on here know who you really are!? or are you to weak and scared (hiding behind a computer screen...please). But it really doesn't even matter because at the end of the day, after every post and word you say your just still just an X-Factor anyway...what a waste of time! Enjoy your useless life, don't waste to much time typing it away! And I still say, "KEEP YOUR MOUTHS OFF" So have fun being Bitter and Racheet! As for me I have better things to do with my time and life then concentrate on uselessness! I don't have to comment anymore on this because everything you say will just prove how bitter you really are...smh

DavisLove

whats former members name? hunh

What is their name oh is it Sister Butts and matt of fact lil girl you can kiss that. And everyone has a right to an opinion soooo lil girl in a womans body who doesn't act like a lady but you think like a man run up. See I'm not going to stoop to your violent level see people see how brainwashed they are and ready to fight sending subliminal messages and trieng to cover her tacks by saying I took it out of context. Touch not my annoited what is he annoited with KY Jelly LOL! There is no excuse for taking up for a super freak. Call me a former member cause I'm glad God delivered me from THE GYMN I mean church. You might as well say goodbye to your pastors they are theives stealing in the name of Jesus. Shameful! The point is everything they have been pulling is over. Their hustle is as busted as Regina and Dee Dee's wig. People no one in this ressesion who is not working should not be able to live better than those who work hard and struggle day by day. Now hit that hard

DavisLove

Its been 13 years since they

Its been 13 years since they said the building for their sanctuary will be built. But the Pastor came up with excuses against Victor Hawk saying he embesseled money and Calvin Walker. Just lying where is. The building? They had a brick project $500 for half a name. We even did $1,000 Sundays, and giving $ 500 birthday money fund raiser. Over 13 years and nothing but a gym. Then instead of the sanctuary they built a Day Care. Another money maker! Wake up sheepal you have been bamboozeled! No building! The land we bought is empty you have church in a GYM! But let's talk about what they did with the money a $3million house, Bently, Hummer, Mercades Gods rath is coming to Morgan Road!

Former Member

Here we go!!!!!

Davis Love has said a mouthful already...by the way did you not realize the other comments by other people with the same views or did my light shine on you?!..lol
