(FreedomWire.org) – Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was arrested on Saturday for driving under the influence in California.
He was driving a Porsche and was involved in a crash with another car before the arrest, according to the police.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was attempting to cross Napa County’s State Route-29 in a 2021 Porsche late Saturday when he was in a collision with a 48-year-old man driving a 2014 Jeep, the California Highway Patrol said.
There were no reported injuries and the police report does not identify either driver as being at fault.
However, the driver of the Jeep was not arrested, while Pelosi was later booked into the Napa County Detention Center.
Pelosi was charged with two misdemeanors: driving under influence and driving with a blood alcohol of 0.08 or higher.
He was bailed out a few hours later at 7:26 a.m., on $5000 bail.
Nancy Pelosi’s spokesperson issued a statement about her husband’s arrest. “The Speaker would not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.” Pelosi was in Rhode Island on Sunday to speak at the Brown University commencement.
While others had plenty to say and they took to twitter to comment on the matter.
