NEWARK, New Jersey - A man from Newark was arrested after attacking an auxiliary bishop during a mass to honor a baseball Hall-of-Famer.
Police say Charles Miller got up from his pew at Newark's Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Saturday, went up to the altar and punched Reverend Manuel Cruz. Investigators have not yet released a motive for the attack.
The mass honored Hall-of-Famer Roberto Clemente. In 1972, Clemente died in a plane crash while trying to bring supplies to earthquake-ravaged communities in Nicaragua.
