.- The San Diego Police Department verified the weekend arrest of the Archbishop-designate of San Francisco for driving under the influence.

San Diego police spokesperson, Detective Gary Hassen, confirmed for CNA Aug. 27 that Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone was arrested just after midnight on Aug. 25 and held in county jail.

After passing through a DUI checkpoint near the San Diego State University, Archbishop Cordileone was further evaluated by the police and then taken into custody.

Just before noon that same day, Archbishop Cordileone was released on bail, Hassen said. The legal blood alcohol content limit for California is 0.08 percent.

Archbishop Cordileone was announced as the replacement for Archbishop George H. Niederauer on July 27, 2012. He will officially become the San Francisco archbishop when he is installed on Oct. 4.

CNA sought comment from the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Diocese of Oakland but none was immediately available.
