Well known youth evangelist Matt Pitt arrested for impersonating law enforcement in Jefferson County. Deputies got a tip he was in the Vulcan Park area last night. They chased him through some woods and caught up with him on 20th Street where he struggled with deputies before being taken into custody. Pitt is the founder of the youth ministry The Basement. An arrest warrant was issued for him on Friday. Authorities caught up with him after getting a tip he was at the Fox 6 studio. Anchor Janice Rogers says Pitt told her he knew nothing about any warrant. Pitt had been on probation in Shelby County for the same charge, but that probation was revoked. He bonded out of Jefferson County jail and is now in the custody of Shelby County authorities.
