Newly appointed SF Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone arrested for DUI in San Diego on Saturday

SAN FRANCISCO

Police in San Diego say Bishop Salvatore Cordileone was arrested over the weekend for driving under the influence. Police say it happened in San Diego's College District just before 12:30 Saturday morning.

Bishop Cordileone is currently bishop of Oakland -- a post he's held since 2009. Last month Pope Benedict chose Bishop Cordileone to become archbishop of San Francisco -- replacing retiring archbishop in George Niederaur. He's scheduled to assume the new post in October.
