Zachary Burdick, 21, was charged with ingestion of methamphetamine, criminal mischief and indecent exposure, the television station reported.

Mandan Police Department spokeswoman Lori Flaten said Burdick had been asked to leave the Spirit of Life Roman Catholic Church because he was walking around the church grounds with the Book of Mormon trying to bless people, KFYR reported.

When returned, Burdick stripped and entered the holy water fountain, the television station reported. Burdick then left the water and walked down the aisle of the church performing a lewd act, police said.

Church officials said they will have to drain the fountain and bless it again, KFYR reported.
