Napa County authorities release electronic DUI photo of Paul Pelosi


The Napa County Department of Corrections released a photo of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband on Monday, weeks after he was arrested for driving under the influence.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested and convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol more than two weeks ago on May 28.

After Pelosi’s arrest in late May, authorities revealed the House Speaker’s husband was half of a two-vehicle collision that occurred while he was under the influence.

As Breitbart News reported:

Pelosi was driving east on Walnut Drive when he attempted to cross State Route-29, and his 2021 Porsche was “hit” by a northbound Jeep just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, CHP said in a statement.

Photos of the junction would show that Pelosi had to go through a stop sign to get on SR-29. Video from the crash site reportedly shows “a burst fence and a downed sign”.

The CHP determined the accident was a “two-vehicle non-injury accident” and arrested Pelosi for driving under the influence at 11:44 p.m., just five miles from Pelosi’s River Run vineyard. Law enforcement failed to arrest the 48-year-old driver of the Jeep.

The photo of Pelosi was taken around 4:30 a.m. on May 29, about five hours after California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers arrested him for two driving offenses under the influence.

However, according to local records, Pelosi was released from jail on $5,000 bail at 7:26 a.m.

Napa County officials released Pelosi’s photo just days after the CHP refused to release body camera footage of his arrest, warning that releasing the video publicly could “jeopardize” the investigation.

“In Napa County, the decision to release or withhold photos or to reserve photos rests with the Napa County Department of Corrections, not the district attorney’s office,” a county spokesperson said. at Fox News. “In the days following Mr. Pelosi’s arrest, Napa County followed Department of Corrections policy regarding the release of photo and photo bookings. Mr. Pelosi received the same treatment under this policy that all people released from the county jail receive.

The local district attorney’s office has not formally charged Pelosi with driving under the influence. The agency said last week that “no decision has been made” on whether to charge Pelosi for his actions.
