Bonner is facing six counts of lewd molestation after a 14-year-old girl accused him of abusing her.

The girl told police she met Bonner at the Galilee Baptist Church, where Bonner is the senior pastor, but said the abuse happened at Bonner's Owasso apartment.

Bonner was arrested Wednesday by a fugitive task force after a warrant for his arrest was issued the same day.
