Police arrest ‘street performer Michael Grant or ‘Philly “Jesus’’ after he walked on water

A street performer Michael Grant or ‘Philly Jesus’, has been arrested after walking on water in Philadelphia’s Love Park, USA. The local police is convinced that Jesus violates public order, however his supporters are ready to do everything possible to release him out of prison.

Philly Jesus, as called by fans and supporters, is a local celebrity in Philadelphia’s parks and favorite pastime is walking on water in the park’s fountains, and occasionally baptizing people.

“All is well. This is just pushing me towards the best of me. You’re always gonna have your haters. People are not gonna like what they don’t understand. I love the hate. Keep the hate coming: Be patient, because the war is coming.”
Grant said when dressing to his fans.


According to the Philadelphia Police, Grant was arrested for disorderly conduct when he refused to leave the park and hundreds of people are now protesting online using #FreePhillyJesus hashtag, to have Grant’s charges dropped.

Grant is a recovering drug addict, who says he just spreads God’s message via the medium of splashing about in fountains. Grant was arrested more than a dozen times between 2005 and 2013.
