Police in Scotland arrested an American Christian for publicly preaching against sexual sin.

Former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff Tony Miano, 49, is charged with breach of peace and "homophobic aggravation." Miano was taking part in a one-week outreach in Scotland.

Last year, London police arrested Miano, charging him with breaching a public ordinance that bans the use of insulting words after he publicly called homosexuality a sin.
    
Now, it's happened again.
    
The UK legal group Christian Concern said Miano was in Scotland with a team of street evangelists.

When he began to preach about sexual sin, a woman became aggravated and shouted that her son was gay.
    
She called the police, who detained him overnight.

He now has to appear in court on April 7.
