William Murphy Arrested at Airport



william-murphyAn Atlanta bishop and well known gospel singer was arrested Wednesday afternoon for allegedly taking a gun to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

UPDATE: Bishop William Henry Murphy III was carrying a 9 mm handgun in his carry-on luggage, and reportedly forgot the gun was in his bag.  The gun was loaded, and Murphy did have a license to carry the fire arm.  A license to carry does not include carrying the weapon into airports and government buildings.

A Transportation Security Administration official allegedly discovered the weapon during an X-ray screening. Murphy does have a license to carry permit, the warrant states.

Murphy is the bishop of The dReam Center Church. He also is a prominent gospel singer. His song “Praise is What I Do” has more than 4.5 million views on YouTube.

According to the church’s Facebook page, Murphy had just been consecrated from pastor to bishop on Monday.
