Salvatore Cordileone, San Francisco's Next Archbishop, Charged With DUI

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego city attorney's office says the Roman Catholic archbishop-designate of San Francisco has been charged with two misdemeanors stemming from his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence.

The city attorney's office said Friday that the Rev. Salvatore Cordileone is accused of one count of driving under the influence and one count of driving with a blood-alcohol level greater than the legal limit of .08 percent.

The 56-year-old Cordileone is currently bishop of Oakland and is scheduled to be installed as archbishop of San Francisco on Oct. 4.

Cordileone was stopped at a DUI checkpoint last weekend while driving with his mother and a visiting priest after dinner with friends.

He issued a statement of apology and said he brought "shame" and "disgrace" upon himself.
