Arizona's Slut-Shaming Preacher Was Arrested for Kicking a Girl in the Chest

Christian University of Arizona student Dean Saxton, better known as Brother Dean, was arrested for assault on Wednesday after taking his anti-gay, anti-feminist, anti-Muslim, anti-yoga pants message a bit too far on the Tucson campus, the Phoenix New Times reports.

Dean was out proselytizing on campus, taking a break from his usual "you deserve rape" routine to warn the masses of the ways that gay people are "destroying the country." When fellow student Mackenzie Brandt approached Saxton, the man of God gave her a swift kick in the chest.

"She took a pretty good kick," Sergeant Filbert Barrera, a public information officer for the campus police, told the Times. "There were shoe marks on her chest."

University police quickly handcuffed the wannabe preacher, who was proudly holding on to his bible and wearing a "No Homo" shirt. He was booked and has since been released from the Pima County Jail pending his court date for a misdemeanor assault charge. He's also been banned from the campus for a year.

Brandt took to Twitter shortly after taking the kick to the chest, saying, "Brother Dean thinks he's so invincible but I just got him arrested and banned from campus so HA."
