Diane Reiners, a Brooklyn Episcopalian minister, was arrested for drunken driving Friday after she was caught weaving through the Holland Tunnel, officials said.
Diane Reiners lives up to her Twitter handle: @unrulypastor.
The Brooklyn Episcopalian minister was arrested for drunken driving Friday after she was caught weaving through the Holland Tunnel with an open bottle of Absolut vodka in the center console of the car, officials said.
Cops also found a second bottle of booze, as well as prescription pain medication and anxiety drugs inside the car, officials said.
Alarmed motorists were so frightened by her swerving across the underwater passage to Jersey City at 6 p.m. that they furiously called 911. The 53-year-old was weaving so dangerously that the tires of her Toyota were hitting a curb inside the tunnel, a Port Authority spokesman said.
Cops found an open bottle of Absolut voka, another bottle of booze, prescription pain medication and anxiety drugs inside the car, officials said.
"My shoes never match and I need God's grace so many times a day," she wrote on her Twitter account.
Reiners is an assistant priest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on the Upper West Side.
She's expected to answer the drunken driving charges in court at a later date, cops said.

NEW YORK CITY, NY: Priest arrested for DUI
March 14, 2015
The Rev. Diane Reiners, an assisting priest at Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan was arrested for DUI according to the New York Post:
An Episcopalian minister was nabbed with an open bottle of vodka and prescription meds inside her car after she was allegedly spotted driving drunkenly through the Holland Tunnel Friday night, Port Authority police said.
Diane Reiners, 53, was swerving in her 2004 orange Toyota and hitting the curb inside the tunnel, at times coming to a full stop, as she traveled from Manhattan to New Jersey around 6 p.m., authorities said....
Officers allegedly found the open container of Absolut on the center console, as well as vodka inside a water bottle, 31 Lorazepam pills prescribed in someone else's name, and 22 packets of Tramadol, a high-potency pain killer. Cops also said she failed a field sobriety test.
From Episcopal News Service re: 9/11 commemoration:
Diane Reiners, who worked at St. Paul's as one of four on-site coordinators of 1,400 volunteers in nine months, said the exhibit is a testament to every single day of their ministry. 'People will see that giving is a joy,' she said.
Once an actress, Reiners has left that profession to help found a company that advocates and facilitates volunteerism. 'Through service we will change the world,' she said. 'It's the only way we will change the world.'
