DETROIT (WWJ) – The Qur’an-burning pastor from Florida is planning a third trip to Dearborn.

WWJ’s Rob Mason reports that Terry Jones plans to attend the upcoming Arab International Festival in Dearborn.

Jones first came to Dearborn on Good Friday for an attempted protest, instead prosecutors sent him to court and he was briefly jailed for failing to pay an ordered Peace Bond.

The following week Jones returned to Dearborn’s City Hall where counter-protesters became angry when Jones approached steel barricades that were meant to separate him from the crowd.

The Arab International Festival takes place in Dearborn on June 17.
