Rashan Lamar Wilson, lead pastor of Southside Impact Church in Charleston, South Carolina, was arrested and charged Monday for allegedly strangling the pregnant mother of his children until she passed out.
Wilson is the author of books such as 99 & 1/2 Things A Woman Needs From Her Man: How To Establish and Maintain a Healthy Relationship.
A WCSC news report said Wilson, 35, was charged with domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. He was released on a $20,000 surety bond and was ordered not to contact the victim who court documents say is eight weeks pregnant with his child. He also cannot leave South Carolina.
Court documents explain that Wilson was at Southside Baptist Church Monday night when the victim arrived to drop off their children.
A witness who is a cousin related to Wilson and the mother of his children, told police that she saw the victim and Wilson standing outside of the victim’s car. She then watched as they walked around the church out of her sight. She soon heard them talking and “getting loud.”
About four to five minutes later, the witness said she saw the mother of Wilson’s children return to her car and she appeared “disoriented, leaning, limping, forehead bleeding, sand and leaves in her hair.”
She revealed to the witness that Wilson strangled her and she blacked out, and did not remember anything after that.
The incident report noted that during the meeting between Wilson and the mother of his children, he “lunged toward the victim, put both of his hands around her neck, squeezed tightly until she was unconscious for an indeterminate period of time.”
