Student arrested after trying to speak to evangelist on UTC campus

There’s plenty of controversy over the arrest of a 24-year-old student on UTC’s campus. The arrest happened Thursday near a female Christian evangelist who’s reportedly been haranguing students. A 4-minute cell phone video of the incident has shown up on YouTube. It’s called “Police Brutality on the UTC Campus,” and it’s racked up thousands of views in less than 24 hours. UTC Police say that due to mishaps from the evangelist’s last visit, there were cones set up this time. They say Cole Montalvo was trying to get past the perimeter to speak to the preacher. That’s when UTC officer Willie Trueitt reportedly told Montalvo five times to get back - before he sprayed him with mace and arrested him for disorderly conduct. Angela Cummings, the evangelist, also uploaded a video of the arrest to her YouTube channel. Student reaction to the incident has been intense.
