LEAGUE CITY — The founder and pastor of a defunct Texas City church has been charged with violating a protective order.
Robert Kenneth “Bobby” Gass, 60, of Tiki Island was arrested Friday in League City. He was in the League City jail on $1,500 bond.
It was his third arrest since November.
In November, Gass was charged with pushing his 36-year-old girlfriend and pulling her hair. Police also reported finding cocaine residue on a folded dollar bill inside his wallet as he was being booked into the Texas City jail.
Gass was arrested again in March on another domestic violence charge in Texas City.
Gass was senior pastor and founder of Baypoint Community Church, 2801 Palmer Highway, in Texas City. Attendance at the church fell after his initial arrest, despite his claims that he did not act violently toward women and that the cocaine did not belong to him.
The church lost the building in February after it defaulted on an $800,000 loan.
