Police arrested youth evangelist Matt Pitt on August 20 after a warrant was issued against him on the charge of impersonating a peace officer. Pitt's mom, Missy, had not spoken publicly about her son's arrest until a TV interview with Fox6 News anchor Janice Rogers.
"We don't get to see him physically, we get to see him through a TV monitor," Missy Pitt explained.
In the interview, Missy Pitt also talks about how she knew her son would be a minister, even back when he was only five-years-old.
"I want him out of there, I want to hold him and hug him. As a mom, I want him out of there," she said.
Pitt remains in the Shelby County Jail. A hearing for Pitt is set for October 15, when a judge will decide if Pitt should have his probation revoked.
