It must be great being part of that elite class in America.
Huffington Post reported:
Paul Pelosi, husband to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), is now facing criminal charges after being arrested last month for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
“The charges filed today include Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Causing Injury and Driving With .08% Blood Alcohol Level or Higher Causing Injury,” according to a press release from the Napa County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday.
In California, those offenses can be either misdemeanors or felonies, but in this case the district attorney’s office filed misdemeanor charges “based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim.”
Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested on May 28 after leaving a dinner at the home of a friend and Democratic donor about six miles from the Pelosis’ house, The New York Times reported. Pelosi was behind the wheel of his Porsche when he tried to make a left turn and was hit by an oncoming Jeep. In the immediate aftermath, authorities had said no injuries were reported. The Thursday statement from the Napa County DA did not elaborate on injuries suffered in the crash.
Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has a preliminary court date on August 3rd for his Memorial Day weekend DUI arrest in Napa County, California that involved a crash with his Porsche and a Jeep.
Pelosi is out on $5000 bail on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.
As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier — According to the police report, Pelosi pulled out onto S-29 to cross it, ignoring a stop sign, and was struck by Jesus V. Lopez, who was driving a 2014 Jeep. Lopez was reportedly traveling northbound on the state road.
At the scene of the accident, Pelosi was found to have been over the legal blood alcohol limit. He was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.
Police waited more than 4 hours to utilize a breathalyzer on Pelosi, in which time his blood alcohol content likely was reduced.
The Napa County District Attorney’s Office is refusing to release police body cam/dash cam footage of Paul Pelosi’s drunk driving arrest because it could “jeopardize” the ongoing investigation.
