Televangelist Oral Roberts Hospitalized After Fall

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Televangelist Oral Roberts has been hospitalized after falling during the weekend.

A statement released Monday says Roberts fell on Saturday and is being treated for broken bones and a slight case of pneumonia. It says he's listed in stable condition at a hospital near his home in California.

The 91-year-old Roberts founded Oral Roberts University in Tulsa in 1963. He returned to the campus in September to help inaugurate the university's third president, nearly two years after his son, Richard, resigned the same post amid a financial scandal that tarnished the evangelical school's reputation.

Richard Roberts and his wife have denied accusations that they spent university money on vacations, home remodels and other luxuries at a time ORU was $55 million in the red.
