Online records show that Adams is the rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, which is just south of Asheville. Troopers pulled over Adams’ vehicle in St. Lucie County shortly after his accusers called police.
He reportedly told investigators the truck pulled alongside his vehicle and when someone inside rolled down a window, started screaming and threw a drink at his vehicle. Adams confirmed that he had a weapon, but said the gun was not loaded and had been kept under his passenger seat the entire time, according to the FHP report.
A 24-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman from St. Cloud told troopers Adams pointed a gun in their direction, causing them to fear for their safety.
The gun, a Glock 22, was taken to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office and submitted as evidence, the report said.
