MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- A minister of music has been charged with
using a Taser to shock the pastor of a Mobile County church during
a fight over pay.

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office says the fight happened Sunday at New Welcome Baptist Church.

Authorities say Pastor Daryl Riley handed the minister of music,
Simone Moore, his final check and said he would no longer be
needed.

Moore disagreed over the pay and shocked the pastor during
an ensuring argument. He was charged with second-degree assault.

Several other church members were involved in the brawl.

Officials say Deacon Harvey Hunt stabbed the music minister's
mother, Agolia Moore.

Hunt was charged with third-degree assault.

Phone listings could not be found for Moore and Hunt.
