Priest Nabbed for Pennsylvania DUI

Police in Central Pennsylvania charged a Catholic priest with driving under the influence of alcohol. According to the arrest report, Monsignor Anthony B. Little rear-ended a stopped vehicle on Thanksgiving. He failed four field sobriety tests and registered a blood-alcohol content of .34%, more than four times the .08% legal limit for DUI in PA. The occupant of the other car was not injured.

Monsignor Little denied having a drinking problem and expressed regret, saying “It was just a stupid thing” and citing “poor judgment” following a family gathering. While not extending an excuse, Little said that it was the first family gathering since the death of his younger brother, and said “I guess it was just the time missing him.”

A spokesperson with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Altoona-Johnstown said the episode is a personal matter and declined to comment. Little remains in his role as pastor at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Newry, Pennsylvania, about 85 miles east of Pittsburgh.
