A priest in California, Maryland reportedly kicked a family out of his church prior to a funeral after someone knocked the chalice over.

In a video that was posted online, you can see Rev. Michael Briese telling the family to get out of the church and to take the casket with them!

They didn't seem to put up much of a fight and just left, with their loved one in her casket. Police, who were already on the scene, escorted the family to another funeral home where a different pastor presided over the funeral.

Now the family of the deceased woman is asking questions and says that were traumatized by the event.

Rev. Briese addressed the issue in a local newspaper and said that this anger got the better of him and that his behavior was inappropriate.

The local diocese is looking into the matter.
