Officers in San Diego arrested San Francisco's newly appointed Catholic archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, on drunk driving charges Saturday morning, a spokesperson for the San Diego Police Department told KQED's Tara Siler.
Detective Gary Hassen said the archbishop-elect was arrested at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday near San Diego State University at a DUI checkpoint.
Cordileone posted a $2500 bond and was released about noon Saturday, said Hassen. His department does not make public the blood alcohol levels of DUI suspects.
"He was interviewed, he was sent over to secondary at which point he was re-interviewed at which point he was placed under arrest and a short time later booked into county jail," Hassen said.
Cordileone's office has not responded to our request for comment.
