(Newser) – A California father and son were arrested yesterday after police say they kidnapped the father's ex-wife. But they also have another act to answer for: Police say 42-year-old Jose Farias and his 20-year-old son, Victor, kidnapped Farias' ex-wife and then forced her to undergo an exorcism. They allegedly picked up two priests, and police say the priests doused her with "sacred oil" in a religious ritual to "purify her."
