FLORIDA -- A North Carolina priest was arrested for doing some rather ungodly things.

According to ABC News, 35-year-old William Rian Adams was arrested in connection with a road rage incident on a Florida Turnpike near Palm City Wednesday after pulling out a gun.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report, Adams, a priest at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, NC, 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.
