A very drunk priest hit the unholy trinity when police officers arresting him for drunk driving noticed that he was also carrying marijuana in his sweatshirt and hiding a pistol in his back pocket.
Father Sean P. Thomson, a University of Alaska Fairbanks parish priest, got pulled over last week when a trooper noticed Thomson's truck "weaving, crossing the center line and speeding 79 mph in a 65 zone."
When the officer asked for his license and registration, the blitzed priest handed over a receipt before blowing a .247 BAC—three times the legal limit.
Asked if he had any weapons, Thomson mentioned a .357 in the back seat but neglected to mention a 9mm pistol in his back pocket, Bitz said. Thomson had a bag with a small quantity of marijuana in the pocket of his hoodie sweatshirt, Bitz said.
Thomson later admitted to officers that he was drunk and refused to submit to a second, more accurate BAC test.
