PEARL RIVER, La. (WGNO) -- A former priest at a Louisiana church faces an obscenity charge along with two women for alleged activities at the church.
According to court records, Rev. Travis Clark and two women, Mindy Dixon and Melissa Cheng, each face an obscenity charge. The Archdiocese of New Orleans says Clark was removed from active ministry on Oct. 1, the day after the arrests.
NOLA.com reports a witness passing Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River on Sept. 30 saw the parish's pastor half-naked having sex with two women on the altar, according to court documents.
Police allege that the person “observed and had video of Ms. Cheng and Ms. Dixon” using plastic sex toys while engaging in intercourse on the altar with Clark, who was still partially wearing his priestly attire.
The women were dressed in corsets and high-heeled boots. There were sex toys and stage lighting. And a mobile phone as well as a separate camera were mounted on tripods, recording it all, NOLA.com reports. The eyewitness took a video and called the Pearl River police.

On a social media account associated with Dixon, a Sept. 29 post says she was on her way to the New Orleans area to meet another dominatrix "and defile a house of God." Dixon and Melissa Cheng, 23, were booked on the same count as Clark, 37.
