He and his brother, Dawid Pawlowski, were arrested on Saturday for “organising an illegal in-person gathering”.

Shocking footage of the arrest shows the pair accusing cops of being “Nazis” and “the Gestapo” before they are told to get out of the car.

The clip then shows Artur on his knees in the middle of the road as officer put him in handcuffs as he screams at them again that “they are Nazis”.

As he refuses to stand up, the cops are forced drag him down the road before two other officers pick up Dawid.

It comes after Artur allegedly violated Covid rules by holding a church service that did not stick to rules.

According to authorities, Artur “chose to ignore requirements for social distancing, mask-wearing and reduced capacity limits for attendees, and continued with the event”, reports the Mail.

Both he and his brother were taken into custody and charged with multiple offences, including inciting or inviting others to attend an illegal public gathering and promoting and attending an illegal public gathering.

It comes after the pastor shouted at police “Nazis are not welcome here” when they arrived at a service he was leading at the Cave of Adullam last month.

Artur was heading a Passover celebration when cops showed up, and he told them “out immediately”.

“Out of this property, you Nazis,” he yelled.

“Gestapo is not allowed here.”

He told officers “I don’t care what you have to say” before telling them to leave until they “come back with a warrant.”

Artur filmed the confrontation before turning the camera on himself to rant about police “coming to intimidate Christians during the holiest festival”.

He shared the footage on Twitter, labelling cops as “the Gestapo”.

“Police came to disrupt church gathering,” Artur wrote.


“Gestapo came again to intimidate the church parishioners during the Passover celebration. Unbelievable.”

Calgary Police Service said officers had been sent to the service to check Covid rules were being followed.

“The concern was that the people in attendance were not adhering to the government’s COVID-19 public health orders, which are in place to ensure everyone’s safety,” a statement said.
