A Catholic Priest from Michigan is in hot water after allegedly driving drunk and naked through Dearborn.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit says it has suspended and placed the Rev. Peter Petroske on administrative leave Monday. Petroske was pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Dearborn.
The Detroit News says Dearborn District Court reports that Petroske will be arraigned Aug. 14 on charges of drunken driving and disorderly or obscene conduct.
The archdiocese says the 57-year-old priest was alone in the vehicle when he was arrested Thursday. Archdiocese spokesman Joe Kohn says Petroske will stay off church grounds during the suspension.
According to the parish's website, Petroske was born in Frankfurt, Germany, and was ordained in 1984.
