According to new court papers, Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, had red and watery eyes, slurred speech, and he also had a drug in his system when he was being arrested for DUI.
On May 28, shortly after 10:00 p.m., Paul Pelosi was involved in a vehicle accident 5 miles from his River Run vineyard. Pelosi was swiftly detained and charged with a DUI following the wreck.
“According to the California Highway Patrol, Pelosi was driving east on Walnut Drive when he tried to cross State Route-29, when his 2021 Porsche collided with a Jeep that was traveling northbound around 10:30 p.m. on Sat.”
According to photos, Pelosi had to go through a stop sign in order to get on SR-29. Video of the collision site allegedly shows “a destroyed fence and sign.”
According to the police, Pelosi had a blood alcohol level of 0.082 percent, which is near to California’s limit.
After he collided with the victim’s 2014 Jeep, Paul Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche had “grave damage.”
When police conducted field sobriety tests on Pelosi, according to a two-count misdemeanor complaint, he exhibited “indicators of impairment.” According to court papers, the cops also observed “objective indicators and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.”
The man was described as having red/watery eyes, being wobbly on his feet, slurring his words, and emitting a strong odor of alcohol from his breath.
Pelosi is also accused of causing the Jeep driver’s injuries while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, and their combined influence.
According to the report, although the victim had initially declined medical attention at the scene, he later informed investigators that he was in severe pain in his upper right arm, neck, and right shoulder. The document stated that the victim had headaches and struggled to lift objects.
When asked by police for identification, multimillionaire Paul Pelosi allegedly handed them his driver’s license and also a “11-99 Foundation” card, according to Fox News. The 11-99 Foundation offers “emergency assistance and benefits to CHP workers and their families as well as provides their children with scholarships,” according to the foundation’s website.
Pelosi will not be attending his arraignment, which is scheduled for this week. Rather, he’ll be represented by a lawyer.
