Drunk Ohio Priest

3/4 UPDATE: Video of the handcuffed reverend's 23-minute tour de force

MARCH 3--Though he looks like a choir boy in his mug shot, Rev. Ignatius Kury acted rather devilishly following his bust last Thursday for drunk driving.

When Ohio cops approached the 35-year-old priest’s vehicle--which was off the roadway and in a swamp--Kury crawled from the driver’s seat into the back seat, where he curled into the fetal position and covered his head with a coat. Asked by a Brimfield Township Police Department officer if he was okay, Kury “stated he was trying out for ‘American Idol.’”

After failing a series of field sobriety tests, Kury, a Ukranian Byzantine Catholic Church priest, was arrested and transported to a holding cell at police headquarters. While cuffed to a wall, Kury “unzipped his pants and exposed his penis,” according to a police report. He also became so “irrational, upset and verbally abusive” that officers began videotaping the rest of his booking.

During his taped 20-minute rant, Kury:

• Asked jailers, “You want me to give you a blowjob? Is that what you want?”

• Remarked, “I’ll give you the Sermon on the Mount. The Sermon on the Mount is this: Get these fucking [handcuffs] off me because I’m getting a rash!”

• Noted that he was being treated like Jeffrey Dahmer, the late serial killer.

• Warned that, “Oprah Winfrey is gonna have her fat ass down here.”

• Sang portions of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Kury, whose blood alcohol content was measured at more than two times the legal limit, was later released on a personal recognizance bond. (3 pages)

When I first saw this yesterday, after viewing the tapes, I figured out which church he was pastor of in Ohio. A Ukranian Byzantine Catholic church. That parish's website had his name on it yesterday. Today (Saturday), it still has pictures of him but his name has been removed from the web site. Hm...... suspended, possibly? This situation (at least the videos) is simultaneously sad and funny. I hope he gets help. (That'll teach him for going to an Oscar party!)
Go figure: another good example of a complete waste of breathable air being shared.
sermon on the mount...brilliant! this guy is the catholic charlie sheen!
