Nancy Pelosi’s Husband, Paul Pelosi, Charged With DUI From May Car Crash
According to the Napa County District Attorney’s office, Pelosi has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a blood-alcohol content at or above 0.08%. Pelosi’s BAC was measured at 0.082% after the crash, according to the DA’s office.
A spokesperson for the Pelosi family said that Paul was “fully cooperative” with authorities and that he was alone in his Porsche at the time of the crash. Pelosi was arrested on May 28 when a Jeep hit his car as he crossed a state road. The Jeep’s driver was not arrested.
Even though authorities could have prosecuted Pelosi with felony charges, the DA said they filed misdemeanor charges because of “the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim.”
Paul could face up to five years’ probation and a minimum five-day jail sentence for the charges. He may also be required to attend driver’s education classes, and his vehicle could have an ignition interlock device installed.
