Terry L. Hornbuckle, the Arlington pastor indicted on sexual-assault charges, was arrested Wednesday, accused of violating the terms of his bail, Tarrant County officials said.

A May 5 test found illegal drugs in Mr. Hornbuckle's system, Tarrant County probation officials said.

Mr. Hornbuckle was being held without bail Wednesday in the Tarrant County Jail.

Jim Sinclair, Tarrant County's assistant probation director, would not say what drug the test found. Police said they found methamphetamine and a glass pipe in Mr. Hornbuckle's car when he was first arrested in March.

"This is not uncommon," Mr. Sinclair said about the failed drug test. "The courts issue these warrants all the time."

The 43-year-old founder of Agape Christian Fellowship church in Arlington was arrested about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday while reporting to the county probation department in downtown Fort Worth.
