Black Church News: Pastor and Firefighter was arrested after he waved at cops

Allegedly, cops this Evansville pastor was just waving at the cops when he was handcuffed.  Pastor Madison was accused of flipping them off.  Although, many see this as a racial incident, Pastor George Madison says not so.
