Nearly a month after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband has been charged in the case.
- Paul Pelosi, 82, is facing charges of DUI with injury and driving with .08 percent blood-alcohol level or higher causing injury, the Napa County District Attorney's Office revealed late Thursday. If he's found guilty, Pelosi faces a sentence of "up to five years of probation, a minimum of five days in jail, installation of an ignition interlock device, fines and fees, completion of a court-ordered drinking driver class and other terms," according to the DA's office.
- The charges stem from a May 28th incident in which Pelosi, who was driving a 2021 Porsche, was involved in a collision with the driver of a 2014 Jeep, according to the California Highway Patrol. Although the Jeep struck Pelosi's vehicle, CHP investigators have determined he "was the proximate cause of the collision," charging documents reveal.
- Do you suspect the DA's office was holding off on filing charges to see whether they could avoid doing it all together?
