A group of Christian missionaries was arrested in Dearborn, MI -- accused of disorderly conduct after they tried to share their faith with Muslims attending the annual Arab Fest.
The missionaries, some of whom are converted Muslims, were released by police in the heavily Arab suburb of Detroit.
Police Chief Ron Haddad told the Associated Press they are not taking sides, but are they are required to keep the peace.
In the past, authorities have banned Christians from witnessing at Arab Fest -- out of safety concerns. One evangelist, George Saieg, filed a lawsuit. Last week a federal judge ruled in his favor -- ordering Dearborn officials to let the minister distribute material at the event.
