One of Hampton Roads’ highest-profile Christians stands accused of a not-so-Christian act.
A plaintiff in a federal lawsuit against Pat Robertson says the televangelist threatened his life and that of his family at a legal proceeding Wednesday in the Norfolk federal courthouse.
The accuser, Phillip Busch, is suing Robertson for misappropriation of his image in the promotion of Robertson’s protein diet shake.
According to a complaint Busch filed with the Norfolk police, Robertson entered a room in the courthouse Wednesday afternoon to be questioned for a deposition – an out-of-court form of testimony – and told Busch: “I am going to kill you and your family.”
Robertson’s attorney, Glen Huff, denied the allegation Thursday, saying: “There was no such threat.”
