@UnrulyPastor Lives Up to Her Name




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.


“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.
