On Wednesday, July 5th, 35-year-old Priest William Rian Admas of Fletcher, North Carolina, pointed a gun at two people in a vehicle at a turnpike near Palm City, Florida.

The Williams who works at Calvary Episcopal Church was driving, in a red Chevrolet Corvette, northbound along State Road 91. William brake-checked a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driving too closely behind him.

The pickup truck driver attempted to overtake the priest's vehicle, as they were alongside him, Williams, the man of God, pulled out a Glock 22, pointed it at the driver and the passenger in the overtaking vehicle. The victims of the road rage incident was a 24-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman, they contacted the Florida Highway Patrol and informed them of the incident. 

The FHP caught up with Wiliams 13 miles along the location of the incident. He told investigators that the couple rolled down their window, screamed at him and threw a drink at his vehicle. William denied pointing the gun at the couple but stated that he had an unloaded weapon in his vehicle which stayed under his passenger seat the entire time

On Friday, July 7th the St Lucie Sheriff's Office located William and arrested him, they charged him with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, he is currently being held in Martin County Jail and being held on a $15,000 bond
