(CBS/AP) COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - A belligerent drunk wanders into a church, where the sheriff happens to be praying.

Stop me if you've heard this one.

Cookeville, Tenn. Sheriff David Andrews says he was worshipping Wednesday when 42-year-old Gregory Blaine Wade wandered in just as the service was ending at the Jefferson Avenue Church of Christ.

According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, an arrest report said Wade became argumentative, was unsteady and had a 40-ounce bottle of beer in his backpack. He was charged with public intoxication.

A spokeswoman at the Putnam County Jail said Monday that Wade was sentenced to 10 days in jail.
