A sign-toting street preacher who didn’t find a receptive audience for his message of hellfire and damnation abruptly ended his sermon in a cloud of pepper spray and a rush of Seattle Police at Broadway and Pike Thursday afternoon.
According to Seattle Police, the preacher had drawn a hostile crowd to the corner in front of the Harvard Market QFC where he called 911 around 2:30 PM to report he had just sprayed pepper spray in the face of a man he said tried to grab his camera.
Police arrived and settled the disturbance, separating the photographing preacher from any further debate over the nature of sin, and calling Seattle Fire to treat the man who had been sprayed.
There were no additional significant injuries and no reported arrests.
