Satanist Arrested For Interrupting Florida Government Meeting

A self-proclaimed Satanist from Florida who objects to prayers before government meetings has been convicted of disrupting a meeting.

An Escambia County judge this week found David Suhor guilty of trespassing and resisting arrest. 

Suhor has been sentenced to three months of probation.

Authorities say Suhor, a member of the West Florida Chapter of The Satanic Temple, was arrested at an Emerald Coast Utilities Authority meeting in February. 

ECUA Chairwoman Lois Benson says the board holds a prayer before the meeting officially starts. Suhor approached the dais and continued to recite the Lord's Prayer after Benson tried to start the meeting.

Officials say a deputy and a security guard had to drag Suhor from the meeting.

Suhor drew national attention in 2016 when he delivered a Satanic prayer before the Pensacola City Council.
