LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

James Bertrand, the man behind the "Just for Jesus" rallies, was booked in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on Friday.

According to the booking report, Bertrand was arrested on Louisiana Avenue by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office on drug paraphernalia and obstruction of public passage charges.  

This comes less than a month after deputies arrested Bertrand at a Sulphur business on charges of contempt of court, forgery and false swearing on June 14.

Bond in his latest arrest has been set at $1,000.

This is at least the eighth time that Bertrand has been arrested in the last 10 months.
