Nancy Pelosi’s husband charged with DUI in Napa County

Nancy Pelosi’s husband charged with DUI in Napa County. The Napa County district attorney said in a news release that Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), was charged with a misdemeanor DUI that caused injury on Thursday.

The charge comes from a crash that happened on May 28 between two cars on State Route 29 in Yountville.


The California Highway Patrol said last month that Pelosi was driving a 2021 Porsche when she hit a 2014 Jeep driven by a 48-year-old man.

The district attorney’s office said that he was arrested and given a blood test, which showed that his blood alcohol level was 0.082 percent.

“These charges can be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony under California law,” the office said. “The District Attorney filed misdemeanor charges because of how bad the victim’s injuries were.”

The office said, “This decision is in line with how our office handles these kinds of cases with similar injuries.” “This is all the information about Mr. Pelosi’s arrest that our office will give to the public outside of a criminal courtroom or in court documents.”

Pelosi could get up to five years of probation, five days in jail, fines, and fees if she is found guilty. A device called an “ignition interlock device” that checks a driver’s blood alcohol level before the engine starts could also be put on Pelosi’s car. He could also be forced to take a class about drinking.

Pelosi is set to be charged on August 3 in Napa County Superior Court.

Last month, a representative for Nancy Pelosi told the Associated Press, “The speaker will not say anything about this private matter, which happened while she was on the East Coast.”

Since 1963, they have been married.
