Paul Pelosi, the spouse of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Was charged Thursday with DUI with injury from the Napa County District Attorney’s Office after he was involved in a May 28 crash.

A press release from the district attorney’s office states that Paul Pelosi had a blood alcohol level of 0.082% after the crash, and said that the blood sample was taken at. 12:32, which was two hours after the collision took place at. 22:17.

The charges against Paul Pelosi are considered misdemeanors in relation to criminal charges, and the press release states that the decision to prosecute was based “on the extent of the damage suffered by the victim.”

The penalty for misdemeanor DUI includes “up to five years probation, at least five days in jail, installation of an ignition lock, fines and fees, completion of a court-determined drink-driving class and other conditions, if applicable,” according to the attorney general.

Paul Pelosi is due to appear in court in Napa County Superior Court on August 3, 2022.

Evidence in the case, such as law enforcement dash-cam footage from Paul Pelosi’s arrest, could not be released by the district attorney’s office under California’s professional conduct rules, according to the press release.

That California Highway Patrol rejected another request for public records from Fox News Digital on Thursday to seek dash-cam footage of the arrest, stating that the agency is in possession of the information but cannot release it because it could “disrupt an ongoing investigation into danger.”
