Christian evangelist shares the story of his arrest

Michael Overd and two other Christian evangelists were arrested last year for sharing the gospel in Bristol.

Michael, a Christian Legal Centre client, has been a Christian for 11 years.

In July 2016, Michael was preaching the gospel in Bristol. After hostility from passersby, he was manhandled and forcibly removed from the scene by a police officer.

This video contains footage from Michael's bodycam, which he wears for his own protection. The footage shows Michael falling to the floor and crying out in pain.
