The 74-year-old founder and leader of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries was arrested without incident at 2:45 p.m. (4:45 p.m. ET) as he was departing the Little America Hotel with his wife, said Manuel Johnson, spokesman for the FBI in Phoenix, Arizona.
Alamo was charged under a federal statute with having knowingly transported a minor across state lines with the intent to engage in sexual activity, Johnson said.

When his wife died of cancer, Alamo claimed that she would be resurrected and kept her body on display for six months while their followers prayed.

On Saturday, he had said that for girls having sex, "consent is puberty."
