Members of a small central Kentucky church successfully disarmed a man who rode horseback to morning services, then walked into the church with a holstered gun. Police said the man, 43, was arrested about an hour later at a house and charged with public intoxication.

The Advocate-Messenger of Danville reported Monday that local and state police were called to Ellisburg Baptist Church after the man arrived, disrupting the service.

Cindy Adams, wife of pastor Jerry Adams, said several men led him outside and talked him into giving up his gun and a rifle he had also brought on the horse.
