House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was fuzzy and unsteady on his feet in the moments after he allegedly injured another driver in a drunken accident in California earlier this year, newly obtained court documents show.
Paul Pelosi, 82, also reeked of alcohol and failed his sobriety test after the May 28 crash in Napa, according to a complaint received by The Post on Tuesday that sheds new light on the incident.
Pelosi, who is due to face two DUI charges related to the accident on Wednesday, was taken into custody at the scene after his Porsche allegedly hit an SUV on his way home from a dinner party.
When officers from the California Highway Patrol arrived at the scene just after 10 p.m., they found that Pelosi — who was in the driver’s seat of his Porsche — appeared to be intoxicated.
“His eyes appear red/watery, he was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred and his breath gave off a strong odor of alcoholic beverages,” the complaint reads
The SUV driver, identified only as John Doe, was standing in front of his vehicle when officers arrived, according to the complaint.
While the victim refused medical treatment at the scene, he told investigators five days after the accident that he had “pain in his right upper arm, right shoulder and neck” and had difficulty lifting objects.
The victim also experienced a headache after the collision, which he did not have before, the complaint said.
Pelosi’s Porsche and the other driver’s SUV suffered “major collision damage,” according to the document.
Police determined at the scene that Pelosi, whose blood alcohol content was 0.082%, was the cause of the crash, court filings say.
Immediately after the accident, Pelosi’s then-attorney Paul Kramer insisted that the SUV driver had hit the back half of Pelosi’s car while turning onto State Route 29.
The complaint does not detail the circumstances that led to the crash.
Paul Pelosi will not attend his arraignment and is expected to be represented by his new attorney, Amanda Bevins.
His scheduled court appearance comes as his wife, Nancy, is leading a delegation of Democratic lawmakers on a high-level visit to Taiwan.
