ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - One year after being arrested for a homeless camp site, Rev. Larry Rice will erect a tent in St. Louis for religious services.

KMOX Radio reports a federal court gave a preliminary ruling that Rev. Rice could erect a tent near the intersection of Interstate 44 and Vandeventer Avenue for religious services.

Rev. Rice attempted to open "Integrity Village" last year for religious services as well as a place for the homeless to live, which met opposition from St. Louis officials, and was shut down. Rice and three others were also arrested.

A KNLC spokeswoman said that the village site could serve as a way to aid the homeless in the future.

The tent will be posted in the next week, according to the report.
