(Newser) – Conan O’Brien’s “stalker priest” has been suspended by the Boston Archdiocese, the Globe reports. The Rev. David Ajemian was instructed by his bishop to remain indefinitely at a residential psychiatric facility after he harassed the NBC late-night host, but he has apparently absconded. For disobeying the treatment order, Ajemian “is not authorized to function as a priest,” meaning his financial support from the Catholic church is over, too.
