Authorities in Alaska say a Catholic priest was arrested after guns and drugs were found in his vehicle. It also didn't help that he was driving drunk.
The New York Daily News reports that a state trooper spotted Father Sean Thomson speeding on a highway in Fairbanks last Monday. Thomson, 52, told the State Trooper Christopher Blitz that he was drunk, then proved it by handing him a receipt rather than his vehicle registration. Thomson's blood-alcohol content was reportedly three times the legal limit.
Furthermore, Thomson told Blitz that there was a .357 in the truck, but declined to tell him about the 9 mm in his pocket. Blitz found it during a search, as well as a bag of marijuana that was in Thomson's sweatshirt.
Thomson was charged with drunk driving, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, not telling a state trooper he was carrying a firearm, drug possession and refusing to taken an alcohol test. The law is less forgiving than the Lord.
