Nancy Pelosi’s husband faces DUI charges in California – Boston News, Weather, Sports

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was charged Thursday with driving under the influence in connection with an accident last month.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested after the May 28 accident in Napa County, north of San Francisco, after a DUI test showed he had a blood alcohol content of 0.082%. The blood sample was taken at 10:17 p.m. about two hours after the collision, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

According to the California Highway Patrol, he drove a 2021 Porsche into an intersection near the town of Yountville and was struck by a 2014 Jeep.

He was accused of driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher.

Prosecutors said the charges could be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor under California law.

“Based on the extent of the injuries sustained by the victim, prosecutors have filed misdemeanor charges,” the office said.

The office did not describe the 48-year-old Jeep driver’s injuries or provide any other information about the person and said they had asked for privacy. The driver of the jeep was not arrested.

After his arrest, Paul Pelosi was released on $5,000 bail. He is due to be charged on August 3. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney who could speak for him.

If convicted, he faces a minimum of five days in prison and up to five years probation. He would also need to complete a drunk driving course and install an ignition locking device in his vehicle — a breathalyzer that the driver must blow into before operating the vehicle, prosecutors said.

Paul and Nancy Pelosi have been married since 1963.
