SF Archbishop Jokes About His DUI Arrest

On Thursday, San Francisco Roman Catholic archbishop, Salvatore Joseph Cordileone joked about his former DUI arrest that occurred this past August. He was recently placed as the new “archbishop amid ceremonial splendor” at San Francisco’s Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption. According to the Associated Press, Cordileone said to the audience, “I know in my life God has always had a way of putting me in my place. I would say, though, that in the latest episode of my life God has outdone himself.”

On August, Cordileone- who is a native from San Diego, California- was stopped at a late-night checkpoint near San Diego State University after having dinner with his mother. He was then apprehended and arrested for DUI into the county jail.

Cordileone pleaded guilty to the minor charge of misdemeanor reckless driving in the case, and has been summoned by the courts to delegate his case on Oct. 9. His attorney submitted the plea to San Diego County Superior Court. Cordileone’s penalty was a “three years’ probation,  a $1,120 fine, and mandatory attendance to a panel discussion sponsored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving.” Archbishop Cordileone deeply apologized for his behavior and the negative attention it gave to the Roman Catholic church.
