House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, is facing more than just the DUI charge according to court records after his run-in with the California Highway Patrol and Napa County authorities.
It was already clear that on May 28, Paul Pelosi was arrested for an alleged DUI after crashing his Porsche into a Jeep. And thanks to new records obtained by Fox News Digital, we know more about what actually happened that night in May.
The crash happened at 10:15 pm and the driver of the Jeep has remained anonymous. Pelosi apparently not only handed his driver’s license to the officer, but he also included his card for the “11-99 Foundation.”
According to the website for this foundation, it provides “emergency assistance to California Highway Patrol employees and scholarships to their children.” A membership card is given when a large gift has been given.
Did Paul Pelosi see this card as a “get out of jail free” card?
The officers concluded that Pelosi showed “signs of impairment” during an evaluation by officers who “observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.”
He “was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcohol beverage emanating from his breath.”
According to another court record, Paul Pelosi faces the DUI causing injury charge, but there is also this…he was under the “influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence while driving a vehicle.”
Paul Pelosi’s attorney, Amanda Bevins, acted dismissive when asked about the drug reference. She said, “I believe that the drug reference is part of the statutory boilerplate language in the complaint.”
We will know more when Paul Pelosi is formally arranged in Napa County Superior Court. And eventually, we might hear something from the Speaker of the House. We’ll have to wait for her return from Asia on the trip Biden and China didn’t want her to take.
