House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was charged with DUI causing injury and could face jail time for alleged drunk driving at the end of May, officials said on Thursday.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was hit with new charges — including driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with .08% Blood Alcohol Level or higher causing injury Thursday, the Napa County District Attorney announced.
Pelosi was arrested just before midnight on May 28 in Napa County, California. He was headed from a dinner party to his and Nancy’s vineyard, River Run, when a 48-year-old man driving a 2014 Jeep crashed into his Porsche.
If convicted, the California Democrat’s husband could face up to five years of probation, a minimum of five days in jail and other terms.
