They must have been expecting a great sermon.

A 52-year-old man was arrested for punching another man and hitting him with his car in a fight over pew space at a church in Ogden, Utah.

According to a June 30, 2014, AP story, the fight happened “during a crowded service that included a baby blessing and a missionary farewell.” The assailant “sat in a section that another family had saved in hopes of getting a good view of the baby blessing. [He] is accused of punching the man after the service, and striking him with his vehicle in the parking lot.”

The assailant has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. He’s also been ordered to complete an anger management class.
