Weeks faces one count of aggravated assault, one count of terroristic threats and two counts of simple battery in connection with the Aug. 22 incident at the Renaissance Concourse Hotel.
Weeks fled the scene before police arrived, but later told members of his congregation the devil had been responsible for his actions.
The charges against him carry a maximum possible sentence of 27 years.– Article continues after this advertisement –
Weeks’ church was also facing possible eviction before the alleged attack.
According to police and court records, Weeks, 41, was struggling to pay the bills since he and Bynum separated three months ago.
Weeks was evicted from his home in Duluth in late June. And he was close to losing the church he built with his wife.
