The Roman Catholic archbishop-elect of San Francisco, Rev. Salvatore Cordileone, has been charged with two misdemeanors stemming from his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence, the San Diego city attorney’s office announced Friday.

The city attorney’s office said Cordileone is accused of one count of driving under the influence and one count of driving with a blood-alcohol level greater than the legal limit of .08 percent.

Cordileone was arrested Aug. 27 after being stopped at a checkpoint in San Diego.

He was released on a $2,500 bond and ordered to appear in court Oct. 9.
