Terry Jones, a controversial Florida Pastor was on Wednesday arrested in Polk County, Fla. Terry was arrested before he nearly burnt about 3,000 Qurans.

Jones’s request for a permit to burn 3,000 Qurans (the holy book of Islam)was denied on Tuesday by the county’s Board of County Commissioners. He wanted to burn the Qurans in a local park to mark the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks in US.

A spokeswoman for the Polk County Sherriff’s Office said Terry Jones was arrested on felony charges after a traffic stop.

Jones, according to NBC Miami, was riding a pickup truck with kerosene soaked Qurans inside the truck bed and additional bottles of kerosene were found in the truck bed.Jones’s website said he wanted to burn 2,998 Qurans at 5 p.m. “in memory of the 2,998 victims of Islamic jihad who were murdered on September 11th, 2001.”

Jones, 61, is a pastor of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville. He was arrested along with another pastor, Marvin Wayne Sapp, Jr.

His church has famously staged Quran burnings in the past, the move at one point earning Jones the condemnation of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, NBCnews reported.
