FORT WORTH An arrest warrant for an Arlington minister accused of sexually assaulting five women was issued last week after he failed a drug test, according to court documents.
Bishop Terry Hornbuckle was arrested Dec. 29 at his Grapevine home because the failed drug test violated conditions of the $1.005 million bail set 10 days earlier by state District Judge Scott Wisch.
It was the third time Hornbuckle, 43, has been arrested for drug violations since March 11, when he was indicted on four of the six sexual assault charges and a drug possession charge.
Hornbuckle was being held late Wednesday without bail in the Tarrant County Jail.
