A 28-year-old man appeared in Broward court on Monday after he was accused of attacking a Deacon during Mass at St. Coleman Catholic Church in Pompano Beach.

Thomas Eisel, who was wearing a vest in court, is accused of attacking George LaBelle, who was serving as a deacon during Mass on Saturday at the church at 1200 S. Federal Hwy.

Eisel was alone. He sat in the front row and when LaBelle was giving the homily, he stood up and pushed him, witnesses said. About 10 parishioners jumped up to defend LaBelle. They wrestled him down and detained him. LaBelle wasn’t injured.
