[Update: The arrest occurred at a sobriety checkpoint near San Diego State University as Cordileone, 56, was returning from a party with his mother in the car. Cordileone is from San Diego. His mother appeared on at least one TV newscast saying that she was partly to blame for not intervening after party guests repeatedly filled her son’s wine glass.
Cordileone was released after posting $2,500 bail. He’s scheduled to be arraigned on the misdemeanor charge Oct. 9.
The bishop issued a contrite statement after the incident became public. It’s after the jump:
"I apologize for my error in judgment and feel shame for the disgrace I have brought upon the Church and myself. I will repay my debt to society and I ask forgiveness from my family and my friends and co-workers at the Diocese of Oakland and the Archdiocese of San Francisco." ]
