A Tyler pastor has been arrested for allegedly molesting a relative at an Austin motel.

Austin police issued a warrant earlier today for Billie Lewis Minson.

Minson is the pastor at the First Baptist Church of Swan, just North of Tyler.

Smith County judicial records say Minson is being held on a 60-thousand dollar bond in the county jail.
