The Napa County District Attorney’s Office announced that Paul Pelosi had been charged in connection with a car crash in Napa County, CA. Charges against the House Speaker’s husband include driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a 0.08 percent blood alcohol level or higher and causing injury.
The outlet noted that the details behind the incident “were not especially flattering.” After her husband’s arrest, “the speaker swung into crisis mode,” noting that it would draw attention to the couple’s lavish California life and his “troubled driving record.”
“And it would shine a spotlight on the Pelosis’ California life, where the couple inhabit two homes, including a 16.55-acre gated estate and mingle with other rich residents, at a time when economic hardship is straining many people of lesser means.”
“The accident would refocus attention on Mr. Pelosi’s troubled driving record, including a crash when he was a teenager that left his brother dead,” the NYT reported.
In 1957, a 16-year-old Paul Pelosi was behind the wheel of a sports car that crashed, killing his brother David, who was his passenger.
Roughly two decades later, Pelosi was on her way to a barbecue for a local Northern California politician along with her husband and “a number of their children” when their car flipped over in another wreck.
As of 2022, the Pelosis’ net worth is around $135 million. The Napa Valley Police claim that Paul Pelosi won’t be given any “special treatment,” but they will not release body cam footage until the investigation is over.
