The arrest of William Rian Adams, 35, in Florida for assault after pointing a handgun at another driver is tragically not unique. However, what is a bit more unusual is that fact that Adams is the rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, just south of Asheville.
Adams was driving near Palm City in Florida in his red Chevrolet Corvette when a pick-up truck tried to overtake him after following him closely on the road. Father Adams then “pointed a semi-automatic handgun” at the two people in the other vehicle. It turned out to be a Glock-22 handgun. They reported the incident and Adams was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
