House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Porsche-driving husband was involved in a two-vehicle accident in California, ahead of his weekend arrest for drunk driving, police have revealed.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was attempting to cross Napa County’s State Route-29 in a 2021 Porsche late Saturday when he collided with a 48-year-old man driving a 2014 Jeep, the California Highway Patrol said.
Nation World News said no casualties were reported and the police report did not identify the driver’s fault.
However, the driver of the Jeep was not arrested, while Pelosi was busted at 11:44 p.m. and booked at the Napa County Detention Center, records show.
The online booking report shows that he was charged with drunk driving and another with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more. Both the allegations are false.
Records show Pelosi was released on Sunday at 7:26 a.m. on $5,000 bail.
The former venture capitalist has been married to the Speaker of the House since 1963, and the couple has five children together. He divided his time between Washington, DC and San Francisco, where he was arrested.
Nancy Pelosi was giving a speech at Brown University in Rhode Island on Sunday.
His spokesman, Drew Hamill, said the speaker would not comment on this private matter, which happened while on the East Coast.
