Those are words that don't seem to go together.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a priest from North Carolina was arrested in Palm City Wednesday following a road rage incident.

According to the FHP, Adams, a priest at Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, North Carolina, was driving his red Chevrolet Corvette on Florida's Turnpike near Palm City when he "attempted to brake-check" a Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck that was closely tailing his Corvette.

The story in the Palm Beach Post went on to explain that Adams reportedly told investigators that someone in the truck had rolled down a window, shouted and thrown a drink at Adams' auto.

A minister in a Corvette was taken into custody after the Florida Highway Patrol said he pointed a gun at people traveling in another vehicle on Florida's Turnpike last week, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Because despite his extra-special personal relationship with Jesus, Adams didn't hesitate to pull a Glock 22 on a fellow motorist who'd pissed him off.

"You would think that being of the cloth, we would have better control".

His accusers would call the police soon after and troopers would eventually pull his vehicle over in St. Lucie County, Florida.

He said it was "kinda comical" in one sense, but also sad. He was booked into the Martin County Jail.

Adams reportedly told police that he had the handgun in the auto but that it was unloaded and stayed underneath the passenger-side seat.
