Yahoo A North Carolina priest may want to practice what he preaches.William Rian Adams, 35, was arrested in connection with a road rage incident on Florida’s Turnpike near Palm City Wednesday after pulling out a gun, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.According to an FHP report, Adams — a priest at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, N.C. — was driving a red Chevrolet Corvette when he “attempted to brake-check” another vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck, that was closely following his Corvette.“As the victim attempted to pass the Corvette, the driver [Adams] pointed a semi-automatic hand gun at them,” read the report.The occupants of the pick-up truck were a man, 24, and a woman, 54, from St. Cloud, Florida.The gun, a Glock 22, was taken to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and submitted as evidence.After the victim and Adams were interviewed by FHP officers, Adams was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.It is unclear if Adams has a lawyer.
Now this is a man who I want to lead me with spiritual guidance. This guy is genuine and is just like all of us, except for the part about going full GTA and pulling a semi-automatic weapon on a stranger on the highway. Besides that Pastor Will is like you and me. He likes classic cars, cruising until the tires fall off and won’t take any guff from any young punk. Perhaps when he brandished a weapon while he was driving was a next level move that most sane people wouldn’t do, but we all handle stress in different ways.
It’s nice to know if you have to go to confess your sins to Padre Billy, that you automatically know he will understand and absolve you of your sins pretty much no matter what you say. That’s comforting. And you just know that his sermons are probably cool as all hell and short. Probably goes off on real tangents discussing his experimental drug use in college as he relates it to Corinthians 6:19-20. Tries to wrap mass up in 25 minutes so that he can get in his Vette and catch a Sunday buzz at a Chili’s.
