Priest charged with waving gun granted bond

A North Carolina priest charged in a bizarre road rage incident, is free on Tuesday, after a judge granted him a $15,000 bond.

35-year-old William Adams is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Florida Highway Patrol arrested Adams after waving a gun at a passing car on the turnpike back in July.

Adams is a Priest at the Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher North Carolina, which is about 15 miles South of Asheville.

Troopers said Adams was driving a red Corvette when he attempted to brake check another vehicle which was driven by a mother from Orlando, with her son as a passenger.

Troopers said the mother pulled out to the other lane and drove past Adams.

That's when Adams allegedly pulled out a semi automatic handgun and waved it at them.

It all happened on the turnpike in Palm City.

Williams told investigators at the scene, that he believed someone rolled down the window and threw a drink at his car.

Adams next court date is September 19 after a judge granted a motion to push back the court date at the Martin County Courthouse in Stuart.
