CHURCH NEWS: Hard times for the Rev. Miles O'Brien Riley, longtime voice of San Francisco's Roman Catholic Archdiocese and best known for his long-running "God Squad" TV appearances.

Two weeks ago, the church said Riley was retiring. It turned out he had been swept up in a new get-tough policy against priests who had been accused of sexual misconduct in their past -- in Riley's case, his very distant past, and under circumstances that his female accuser said were consensual and stopped short of sex.

Then, in the wee hours of the morning of Sept. 7, the 64-year-old Riley was pulled over for driving erratically on El Camino Real in Millbrae, according to police Capt. Mike Grogan.

A breathalyzer test was given, and Riley was allegedly found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.18 -- more than twice the legal limit.

He was booked for driving under the influence and held for several hours.

"We've submitted a report to the D.A. recommending that a DWI complaint be issued against him," Grogan tells us.

Riley's attorney, Gil Eisenberg, didn't return phone calls.
