Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy



After last week's toughie, here's more of a softball. Found it in a book I was browsing through at Barnes and Noble.

Category: Saints and sinners

This saint may be the only one with a notarized police record for nighttime brawling with an intent to inflict serious harm.

St. Alex says, please place your answer in the form of a question in the combox, and say a few Hail Marys while you wait for the answer to be revealed.

Demerits for using Google and other sneaky searches. Educated guesses are welcome and encouraged. Good luck!!

The first correct answer in the form of a question wins the highly coveted WKJ ribbon to display on your blog, cubicle or refrigerator door.

Late again. Of course I was going to guess St. John Vianney or St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort, both of whom were renowned for clearing bars of noisy patrons who interrupted their sermons (no homilies in those days of olde).

St. Ignatius was a Spanish nobleman, so he probably got written up a lot.

But they probably didn't have any police blotters to verify the events back then in rural France. But if you can't believe Fr. Corapi, who can you believe.
