Nancy Pelosi’s husband was at a dinner party before DUI broke: Attorney
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was driving home from a dinner party when he was involved in an accident allegedly driving while intoxicated, his attorney revealed.
“Mr. Pelosi attended a dinner party at a friends house near Oakville,” said Paul Pelosi’s attorney, Paul Kramer. said Fox News’ Chad Pergram the bust on Saturday night in upscale Napa Valley, California.
“He left this party at 10:15pm on Saturday to go to his house nearby. He was alone in his car,” Kramer said of the arrest five miles from Pelosi’s multi-million dollar vineyard.
He insisted the 82-year-old house speaker’s husband had stopped at the intersection before turning onto State Route-29 when his 2021 Porsche “was hit in the rear fender by a Jeep.”
However, ABC7 footage of the scene showed a long strip of fence lying on the ground next to a fallen street sign.
“Mr. Pelosi was fully cooperative with California Highway Patrol officers, who arrived a few minutes later,” he said.
The California Highway Patrol said the accident happened at 10:26 p.m. — about 10 minutes after the former venture capitalist is said to have left the party. He was then arrested at 11:44 p.m., police said, without explaining the gap of more than an hour.
Kramer insisted to Fox News that many previous reports “misstate the timing of events.”
“Mr. Pelosi left the dinner party at 10:15 p.m. Saturday. The incident occurred minutes later. CHP and Napa County processing continued until 7:30 a.m. Sunday,” he emphasized.
Pelosi – who has been married to the Democrat leader, also 82, since 1963 – has been charged with drink driving and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher. Both allegations are administrative offenses. He was released on $5,000 bail.
The 48-year-old driver of the Jeep involved in the accident told ABC7 he was just grateful no one was hurt, the broadcaster said.
