Rev. Gregory Malia, 44, a Pennsylvania Episcopal priest, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct after a bar fight involving his estranged daughters, their boyfriends and Malia’s two female companions. Police said he pulled a gun at the River Street Ale House in Luzerne and kept his daughters’ boyfriends at bay while one of his companions fought with his daughters. “My heart is broken,” Marilyn Malia, 23, told the Daily News as she nursed a broken nose. They beat the living hell out of me, and my father just stood there and watched and enjoyed it, and protected the girls who beat me.” Police said Malia fled the scene with the two women in a black Jaguar but was later arrested. Malia, a hemophiliac, made headlines last year when the Daily News revealed he was a club legend known as “Father Greg” who doled out 5-figure tips and bought Dom Perignon for strangers.
UPDATE – Malia was defrocked from the Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem, Pa., on grounds he “abandoned the communion of this church.”
