MULBERRY (FOX 13) -

He's still planning to burn the Koran, but in a new twist, Pastor Terry Jones could be arrested if he goes through with it.

Jones says he's planning to burn 3,000 Korans on September 11th at Harpe Park in Mulberry.  But he needs permits for two things: Assembling his rally at the park and a public burning display.

Getting the permits is normally a two-week process, and since it's a holiday weekend, that probably doesn't give Jones enough time to get the permits.

The sheriff's office says, by law, Jones could be arrested if he goes through with the burning.
