Church of England parish priest Gareth Jones yelled 'I have diplomatic immunity' as he attacked emergency crews who found him passed out in central London
A Church of England vicar shouted: 'I'm from the Vatican, you're f*****' as he lashed out at police following a nightclub vodka binge.
Parish priest Gareth Jones, 36, screamed: 'I have diplomatic immunity' as he punched, kicked, bit and spat at a police officer and a paramedic who found him passed out in his clerical frock in Covent Garden, central London.
When paramedic Ian Pollock gently shook the passed-out pastor at 2.30am to check he was alright, he awoke and growled: 'I am going to f*** you up.'
Jones threatened to attack Mr Pollock but was unable to stand up due to his inebriated state.
