If you ever find that God decides to answer your prayers for money you might want to insist that he pay you in cash:
The 21-year-old Gary resident was arrested Monday after trying to cash a check for $50,000 that he said was given to him by “his Father,” Hobart Police Detective Jeff White said. The check was signed “King Savior, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Servant.”
He was charged with one count attempted check fraud and one count intimidation, both Class D felonies, and one count resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor. He faces a maximum sentence of seven years.
Police were called to Chase Bank, 1800 E. 80th, about 4 p.m. after Russell tried to cash the check, which was written on an invalid Bank One check with no imprint, White said. Russell had several other checks with him that were signed the same way but made out in different dollar amounts, including one for $100,000.
You’d think that with all the churches out there collecting money on God’s behalf that his checks would be good, but apparently he’s been bouncing a couple lately and that’s a sin the banks won’t forgive.
