oral roberts son arrested on dui suspicion

Dad would NOT be proud!

Back in December 2009, famed televangelist Oral Roberts passed away at the age of 91.

Today, Oral's 63-year-old son/former president of Oral Roberts University Richard Roberts was arrested by Oklahoma Highway Patrol while traveling a whopping 93 mph in his Mercedes-Benz sedan!

Roberts was booked in Tulsa County Jail, and he was later released after posting bond.

Here's what Oral Roberts University spokesman Jeremy Burton had to say about the arrest:

"Our prayers go out to Richard and Lindsay Roberts and their entire family as they face this life challenge. May God's grace help them as they work toward healing."

We're just glad that nobody was hurt! Driving 93 mph down the highway while drunk?!?!?!? Not good.

Get help, Richard. Immediately.

    I'd rather see an arrest warrant extended for him instead of prayers.



  2. 2

    I'm sure his defense will be that God told him to get drunk and speed.

    I hate it when people use the term 'healing' in cases like this. Instead of healing how about 'take responsibility', 'atone', 'accept the need for change', or just 'grow up'???

    what was his BAC? was he intoxicated or just a rude speeder?

    How strange to come across this news tidbit…. I was looking on IMDb today at the birthdays for the day, to see who else had their birthday today, along with me. Oral Robert's birthday is today. I guess his son commemorated that with a nice DUI. Cool. err.. not really.

    My husband is dead, because of a drunk driver! There should be no second chances! Drivers privlages should be taken away! Forever!
    You can't trust anyone who will drive drunk! They have a weapon in their hands! They kill innocent people!
