Nancy Pelosithe husband of, Paulwill face criminal charges — and possibly jail time — for his recent DUI arrest, and TMZ has learned … the arresting officer noted that Pelosi gave him a special card showing that he supported the cops.
Paul Pelosi was charged with 2 misdemeanors: driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher causing injury.
We’re told a blood sample was taken and it came back to 0.082% BAC…just over the legal limit.
TMZ broke the story…Paul was involved in a car accident the night of May 28 near Napa, Calif., where police say Paul was driving a 2021 Porsche when it was hit by a Jeep in a 2-vehicle crash.
Responding CHP officers said Pelosi had “objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication”… such as watery eyes, slurred speech and a “strong odor” of alcohol on his breath. They say he also showed signs of intoxication after field sobriety tests.
Interestingly, they also note that Pelosi gave officers his “11-99 Foundation” card when they asked him for ID. The foundation provides financial assistance and scholarships to CHP officers and their families.
The penalty includes up to 5 years probation, a minimum of 5 days in jail and the installation of an ignition interlock.
Paul, who was not with Nancy, took a solemn word rant after his arrest.
Police also note that the victim reported arm, shoulder and neck pain, had difficulty lifting objects … and was seeking medical attention from his doctor.
There were rumors that the Governor of California stepped in to help Paul, something that was shot down by a Napa County spokesperson, who told TMZ… “Governor newsom did not contact the DA’s office or intervene to have all DUI charges against Paul Pelosi dropped.”
Our sincere thanks to
