Bishop T.D. Jakes, a Dallas megachurch pastor, was embarrassed when his son, Jermaine, was arrested after exposing himself and masturbating in front of law enforcement officers during a gay sex sting in a public park. Two undercover detectives were conducting an investigation into citizens complaining about sexual activity in a local park. They followed Jermaine into a wooded area where he made eye contact with one of the officers while masturbating. T.D. Jakes released a statement to the press (which he also read to his congregation) distancing himself from his son’s actions by pointing out that Jermaine Jakes is an adult.
