Texas priest recovering from mysterious assault

In a strange case out of Texas, a Austin diocesan priest, Fr. Rafael Padilla, 42, was mysteriously assaulted almost immediately upon checking into (I'm not kidding) the Relax Inn, located in neighboring San Antonio.

According to the police report, when asked how he was assaulted, Padilla said "he thought he was dreaming and didn't know what was going on."

The San Antonio Express-News has the full story.
