Dead priest was drunk

CINCINNATI: A coroner's report says a Roman Catholic priest who died in a one-car crash early Tuesday was drunk when his car ran off Interstate-75 north of Cincinnati.

The Butler County coroner says the Reverend Charles Mentrup had an estimated blood-alcohol level three times higher than the legal limit of point-zero-eight percent.

The coroner says the 47-year-old priest died of a skull fracture when his car hit an embankment and he was thrown from the vehicle. Source.
