Paul Pelosi, 82, the husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol on May 28 in Napa County, according to Napa County booking reports.

Paul Pelosi’s spokesperson, Larry Kamer, issued a statement to SFGATE in which he reported Pelosi was driving toward his home in St. Helena following a dinner party. While attempting to cross State Route 29 around 10:30 p.m., a Jeep hit his 2021 Porsche. California Highway Patrol subsequently arrived on the scene and placed Pelosi under arrest.

The Napa County booking report indicates Pelosi was charged with two misdemeanors, including driving while having a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.

Kamer stated that Pelosi was “fully cooperative” with law enforcement.

Authorities released Pelosi from the Napa Valley Detention Center around 7:30 a.m. the following morning after he paid his $5,000 bail, per county release reports.

Multiple news outlets reached out to Nancy Pelosi’s office for comment but were initially rebuffed.

On May 29, her spokesperson, Drew Hammill, stated to the Daily Beast, “The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”

The House speaker received an honorary degree and gave a commencement speech to Brown University’s graduating class of 2022 the day her husband was released from jail.

Paul Pelosi has maintained a relatively low profile despite his wife’s political fame. He currently owns Financial Leasing Services, a venture capital firm.

Paul Pelosi made headlines earlier in the year when members of Congress tried to advance legislation that would ban stock trading by members of Congress.

Pelosi’s lucrative trades cast a spotlight on his wife’s financial disclosures, which were already considered a reliable source for stock tips by young investors on TikTok.
