Tulsa, OK -

Richard Roberts is used to using his hands for healing, but around midnight Tuesday, they were put in handcuffs.

The day before his arrest, Roberts posted a video on his ministry's Facebook page. In it, he's praying for others, now many of are praying for him after news of his arrest on the suspicion of driving under the influence. Supporters posted words of encouragement on the same site, on what would have been his father, Oral Roberts 94th birthday. In May, Roberts had this to say about his famous father. "I miss our open frank discussions," he told Tulsa's Channel 8. His dad's death is just one of the major events that rocked Roberts' life. In 2007 scandal unseated him as president of the university his dad founded. Roberts described it as a living hell.

Now turmoil on the turnpike. According to a Oklahoma High Patrol Trooper, Roberts was speeding on the Creek Turnpike and reportedly doing 93 mph in a 65 mph zone. The trooper says he eventually caught up to Roberts on Highway 169 near the 71st Street exit. He says Roberts failed a field sobriety tests so he took him in.
Oral Roberts University released this statement, "Our prayers go out to Richard and Lindsay Roberts and their entire family as they face this life challenge. May God's grace help them as they work towards healing." Others also expressed concern On KTUL.com. Fred wrote, Sorry to hear this, all people make mistakes in their lives, he is no different. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." However, T-town dude disagrees, posting, "Some are held to a higher standard than others. Politicians, religious leaders, teachers, etc are some of those that, at least publicly, should be held accountable in their work for their moral mistakes.

It's too soon to tell how this will affect his ministry or if Roberts will take a break from his program, "the Places for Miracles".

Roberts spent three hours in jail. He was released early this morning. His attorney says if charges are filed he suspects they'll enter a not guilty plea.

He run in there to get a pack of gum and breath mints. Nothing to it.
