Birmingham-area youth pastor charged


TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A Jefferson County youth pastor has been charged with impersonating an officer less than a year after he pleaded guilty to a similar charge.

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Randy Christian tells local media Matt Pitt has been charged after a June 15 incident.

Christian says Pitt was out of town but was expected to turn himself in upon his return. His bond has been set at $15,000.

Pitt is a youth evangelist and the leader of The Basement youth service.

Pitt is already serving two years probation after he was arrested in May 2012. He pleaded guilty in September to a charge of attempting to impersonate a peace officer.
