DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit pastor has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence involving his estranged wife.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says the Rev. Horace Sheffield III was arraigned Thursday and released on a personal bond. He also is charged with preventing a crime report.

His pretrial hearing is Feb. 21.

The charges stem from a Jan. 10 incident between Sheffield and DiAnna Solomon at their Detroit home.

Both tell The Associated Press Thursday that they are in the midst of a divorce.

Solomon referred further questions to her attorney.

Sheffield spokesman Adolph Mongo says Solomon and Sheffield struggled over a cellphone when she returned to retrieve some belongings.

Sheffield is pastor of New Destiny Christian Fellowship Church. Solomon operates a public relations firm.
