Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate reports:
A Homestead-area pastor is being accused of open lewdness and indecent exposure, but he says what police say happened is not what really happened. Officers were sent to the 800 block of Beechland Street around 11:30 p.m. Friday for a report of a suspicious vehicle parked outside of a home.
According to a criminal complaint, when the officers arrived on the scene, they could see two men inside the vehicle. Police say one man — identified as 61-year-old George Nelson Gregory, of Munhall — was in the back seat, and the other man was completely naked and bound with nylon rope in the front seat.
The criminal complaint says when officers asked what was going on, Gregory told the officers that they “were just playing” and he and the other man “meet up from time to time to play with each other.” The other man confirmed that what they were doing was consensual. Gregory, however, says none of that is true and “that conversation never happened.” “I have nothing to hide. I did nothing wrong,” Gregory said.
The pastor claims he and his wife have been counseling the “young man with a drug problem” for years, adding, “I won’t deny that he began to take his clothes off and propositioned me, but I will deny, on a stack of Bibles with God as my witness, that I did nothing.” Yup.
