Priest blames consecrated wine for drunk driving

An Italian priest caught driving over the alcohol limit blamed the reading measured by police on the consecrated wine he consumed at Mass.

He said it wasn't voluntary because it was a necessary part of the four masses he had celebrated during the day, but the officers rejected the excuse and revoked his driving licence, ABC reported quoting the ANSA news agency.

The 41 year old priest, who was caught coming off the Milan-Turin motorway with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 grams per litre which is above the authorised limit in Italy of 0.05 grams, reportedly plans to appeal against the ruling.
