REVEREND Travis Clark was arrested for filming himself having sex with two dominatrices inside a church on September 30.
They were allegedly having intercourse with each other as a camera and cellphone appeared to be recording from a tripod on the altar, a local news outlet reported.
Who is Reverend Travis Clark?
Reverend Travis Clark, 37, worked as a priest at Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River, Louisiana.
He was ordained in 2013 and had been working at the church since 2019.
Additionally, he had recently been named chaplain of Pope John Paul II High School.
Why was he arrested?
Clark was arrested after filming himself having sex with two dominatrices inside the church on September 30.
An unidentified witness reportedly saw Mindy Dixon, 41, and Melissa Cheng, 23, allegedly having sex with Clark – who was half naked.
Dixon, an adult film actor, and Cheng were allegedly wearing high heels and corsets as Clark handled sex toys.
A witness walked towards the church out of curiosity as the inside lights were on at an unusual time and used a cell phone to record the unexpected sight before contacting the Pearl River police.
It was possible for the onlooker to peek inside the church through the windows and glass doors.
In addition, "stage lights were set up, and they were using a cellphone and camera, both mounted on a tripod" to record themselves, according to WWLTV.
What charges are they facing?
Clark was suspended from the ministry just one day after this arrest.
All three were arrested and booked with obscenity.
When police responded to the scene, they looked at the footage and arrested the trio.
“Obscene acts occurred on the altar, which is clearly visible from the street," police said.
Each one could face up to three years in prison if convicted.
Town council member Kat Walsh was angry that Clark chose the church to engage in the acts.
“What upsets me is, why did he have to do that there?," she told WWLTV.
"I’m upset for all of us, the parishioners of the church. Why there?”
