NAPA COUNTY, Calif. – Paul Pelosi was involved in a two-vehicle collision in California before getting arrested for impaired driving in May. The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pleaded guilty to DUI on Tuesday. He received a sentence that includes three years of probation, restitution to the victim and a three-month DUI program. He must also have a certified ignition device installed on his vehicle for a year.
Following Pelosi’s guilty plea, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) released photos and videos recorded on the night of his May 28 crash. The long-awaited videos show his comportment and what police previously described as “objective” signs of intoxication, as well as police asking him to perform field sobriety tests, Fox News reported.
Pelosi, 82, was driving his 2021 Porsche during the crash involving the other driver’s 2014 Jeep. The vehicles sustained “major” damage during the 10:17 p.m. collision that occurred near the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road.
The other driver told police he was headed northbound when he “saw a glimmer of light go across” just before the crash.
