House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul has been charged with DUI with bodily injury by the Napa County District Attorney’s Office.

Pelosi was charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence causing injury Thursday.

Originally, police did not reveal that anyone was injured in the crash on May 28.
Generally a DUI involving bodily injury is a felony offense if the injuries are serious and require hospitalization.

The identity of the victim is being withheld per Marsy’s law.

According to the district attorney’s office press release, Paul Pelosi, 82, had a blood alcohol content level of .082% several hours after the crash, slightly above the legal limit of .08%.
The blood sample was drawn at 12:32 a.m., which was two hours after the collision occurred at 10:17 p.m.

Pelosi faces five years of probation, a minimum of five days in jail, installation of an ignition interlock device. He also faces fines and fees as well as completion of a court-ordered drinking driver class.

Officials are still refusing to release the police body cam video from the arrest.
