When officers asked Roberts to comment on his condition, Roberts replied that Jesus is with him. Jesus was released at the scene on his own recognizance.

It wasn't Richard's fault. He had some bottles of water and jesus kept turning them into wine as a prank.

This snob is even more of a phony than his predecessor. Always preaching against the very thing he does himself. That wife, with her teenage lovers entertained with tax-exempt "ministry" money. All that byyye-bell stupidity. That eyesore of a place that looks like a las Vegas reject. Interference in city government. Taking terrible advantage of weak insecure people. Human rights abuses that are tolerated only because it is "private" property. Well, it isn't. Taxpayers subsidize all that mess and it should be subject to federal law concerning such matters. They seem to want something they will never have. They are not getting their slaves back. I have never given a cent to this place and these phony jesus people have no influence over the life of a thinking person. Not now, not ever.

another one bites the dust.

funny how the charismatic witches keep falling.

Watch his show and send him some money...

Was he speaking tongues to the officer.

Maybe God was driving the car 90 miles an hour.

He needs to call Andrew Wommack and get healed.

Come on people. Someone who is reading this knows more about this story. Or you know someone who has more information. Was he at a bar? Was he with somneone other than his wife? Why was he out so late. He always want you to plant a faith seed in the form of cold hard cash, can't someone plant a seed of truth of what this guy was up too. Also on his tv show there has been no mention of this unfortunate incident. It even appears that there has been no broadcast since it happened. I just can't believe that in a city this large people are not buzzing about this. In the small community I live in any public figure would be fair game when it comes to this kind of indescretion.

RIchard has had a drinking problem, among other things, for years and had paid off people to keep his secrets safe.

This guy and his family have deep, dark secrets and there are people in the know. It is only a matter of time before all comes out...just like his drinking and driving.

I hope that this latest event finally takes his criminal acts off of the television. He is a fraud and has no more power or connection to a diety than a rock in my front yard. But there are always the weakminded sheep who need a crutch to fall back on. Religion is a scam and one of the best money-making ideas ever created by man. Tax exemptions, expensive clothing, private jets and limos, and the multitude of other benefits that come with telling a fairlytale and mythology.

This scam artist along with all the others need to go away forever.

Has anyone heard when he is going to make a statement? Do you think he is meeting with his lawyers to try to come up with some type of defense that will get him out of this mess and allow the ministry to continue?. His show is on the black religious station called the Word and I have not been able to see it the last several days. Tulsa, don't let this guy off the hook. He needs to face the music just like the rest of us. The fact that his mugshot is now viral is something he can't call back. Don't think for one moment that he and his minions don't monitor sites like this and if the chatter dies then they think, "no big deal" we will just go back and collect those seeds from the partners.

If you watch the Jan. 25, version of his show, you will see he has on the same pink polo he had on when he was arrested. I watched the first few minutes of the show and no mention of his drunken state the night before. I am curious how he is just going to pretend he wasn't caught drunk driving and continue to preach about miracles and faith seeds. Has he made a statement yet? Do any of you know?

Who cares if he got arrested? I guess if you have listened to him and donated tons of money to him, then you might have a right to be upset. But....if you haven't...who cares?? He is just another bonehead in the crowd that luckily didn't kill a family while driving drunk. If this guy was a plumber, a CPA or a truck driver, no one would ever hear about the arrest or blink an eye....Who cares!!

If he was a plumber, imagine the cool floating bar you could have in your bathroom. All by laying hands instead of laying pipe, brilliant!

I know Richard and everyone has a few secrets even me! but i'm asken dont judge him or his family you only heard rumors and not all the facts He may have been picked up for speeding and drunk driving but i know people who aren't drunks but are diabetics and believe it or not they can act the same way and I should know I have 3 people in my family who have diabetes and one of them was picked up for drunk driving but released on bail and had to go to court a doctor came fourth and said he was not drunk he has diabetes he had a low and failed his test and needed sugar bad and his breath smells fruity like wine. So lets wait andf see what happens to him before we judge okay.

lets ALL "perform" some "miracles". Lets start off making Water into Wine like they did in old israel by grandpaw rabbbi jesus/yosiah bin yosef who was a chemist too.First sew pockets into your robe,then with some slight of hand reach over the water barrels and drop purple dye (made from shellfish) pellets and opium pellets into the water. say a long prayer to give them time to melt and..... Presto.... kick asse wine from water for the Uneducated not schooled in the Mystery Schools>(today's colleges).

NOW FOR THE NEXT MIRACLES > the dead sea brine can be made into iodine and PURE potassium iodide.pure potassium iodide looks like water.rabbbi grandpaw jesus/yosiah bin yosef gave the crazies that lived among the tombs PURE POTASSIUM IODIDE to drink which flushed out the brain parasites that were altering the hosts behavior> see scientific reports of John Hopkins university.microscopic parasites cross the blood brain barrier.these PARASITES are responsible for ALL MENTAL DISEASES ALONG WITH THE HEAVY METALS AND FOOD ADDITIVES THAT ARE STORED WITH BRAIN,BLOOD,ORGANS,BONES,ETC.I ODINE FLUSHES THEM ALL OUT,TAKES ABOUT 4 MONTHS WITHOUT WUSSING OUT FROM THE DETOX SICKNESSES THAT YOU WILL GO THOUGH.

HERES ANOTHER SO-CALLED MYSTERY.....here's why grandpaw rabbbi jesus said " their worm died not and the fire is not quenched".... pigs and cattle contain -SULFUR- BASED MICROSCOPIC PARASITES THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND LIVING IN -EXTREME HIGH TEMPS-.... Cooking the meat will not kill them,the (MICROSCOPIC PARASITES)worms don't die even if quenched by fire. CONTINUOUS HIGH IODINE DETOX KILLS ALL MICROSCOPIC PARASITES PAST THE BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER AND REMOVES HEAVY METALS AND FOOD ADDITIVES STORED IN THE BODY THAT WILL NOT BE BURNED BY THE BODY LIKE ALL NATURAL FOODS.
