Snake Handling Pastor Arrrested

A Kentucky pastor of a church that practices snake handling is facing charges for buying, selling and possessing illegal reptiles. Gregory Coots was taken into custody along with nine other people this week. Authorities say the pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro had 60 venomous snakes. A woman died during a service at the church 13 years ago.
