Priest Arrested For Dealing Coke On Campus We've heard of priests doing stuff to get young people pumped up about the church -- adding an acoustic guitar to the service, getting a rad crucifix tattoo -- but a Catholic priest in Illinois blows them all out of the holy water. Emphasis on blow. Reverend Christopher Layden, 33, was recently arrested and charged with possession and distribution of cocaine at his home, the University of Illinois campus church rectory. He pleaded not guilty in court and is currently under suspension by the Catholic Diocese of Peoria. If he wasn't ratted out by the Drug-Busting Bear, we suspect campus officials got suspicious when the nuns started hitting the bathroom five at a time.
