SAN DIEGO — Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner was booked into jail on Saturday and released on charges of false imprisonment and battery.

Filner startled San Diegans on Tuesday when he entered guilty pleas for the offenses. He had been scheduled to undergo the booking on Sunday.

San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Dave Schaller said Filner arrived just after 7 a.m. at the downtown jail and was released less than two hours later.

The Democrat raised in Squirrel Hill was forced to leave office less than two months ago because several women accused him of sexual harassment and unwanted advances.

Filner pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one felony for putting a woman in a headlock and two misdemeanors for kissing a woman against her will and grabbing the buttocks of a third.

Under a plea agreement, the state attorney general's office will recommend Filner be sentenced to three months of home confinement and three years of probation.
