US priest arrested in road rage incident after pulling out gun
FLORIDA: A North Carolina priest is facing assault charges after he pulled out a gun in a road rage incident, thus landing him in a trouble.
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.
Adams was driving near Palm City in Florida when a pick-up truck that had been following his Chevrolet Corvette closely tried to overtake him.
Mr Adams, 35, then “pointed a semi-automatic hand gun” at the two people in the other vehicle, police say.
The priest was arrested on Friday after the victims reported the incident.
He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
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.
