A Topeka pastor has been arrested for the second time in a week. He's accused of disorderly conduct and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Topeka police arrested Greg Varney Wednesday night after officers responded to check on his welfare. He had reportedly left a nearby hospital and was behaving erratically.

Police say officers found Varney in the 1900 block of SW 10th Street where he wouldn't accept help and was then taken into custody. He was arrested for disorderly conduct and battery on a law enforcement officer.

Varney was also arrested last week in connection to an aggravated assault. The Light of the World Church said his behavior causing last week's arrest was due to a medical condition.

Varney and his wife founded that church in 1985.
