Just days after a video surfaced showing members of a Macon church fighting about a pastor, authorities arrested the man they said caused it all.

Julian DeWayne Coker, 36, was charged with inciting a riot during the brawl at Greater Bellevue Baptist Church, the Macon Telegraph reported. Coker turned himself in to authorities Friday after being identified from the video.

The church congregation met May 1 to decide if Rev. David Stephens would stay or leave, but punches and furniture were thrown instead. Footage of the fight was posted to YouTube.
