‘Jesus’ Arrested at Apple StoreJesus Daily
Philly Jesus has been a constant presence in Center City for more than two years now. He shows up at city events, walks the streets during the workday — usually while carrying a cross.
Police say the Apple store’s manager told them Grant refused to leave Monday night despite being asked multiple times. They say his cross was blocking an aisle. He was handcuffed and arrested.
“I know my rights!” Philly Jesus yelled, according to several bystanders. “Freedom of religion!”
Philly Jesus was taken away in a police van. When one witness left the scene, the police were trying to fit his cross into a cop car.
