Napa, California – Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, was pulled over in Napa shortly before midnight Saturday and arrested for driving drunk.
The 82-year-old businessman and insider trading enthusiast was booked on two misdemeanor counts with bail set at $5,000, according to TMZ.
Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested this weekend for DUI … TMZ has learned.
The House Speaker’s spouse was arrested just before midnight Saturday night in Napa County, and then booked hours later into jail on two counts — driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher … both misdemeanors.
The details of the incident of the arrest have yet to surface, and we’re working on getting a full narrative — as well as a mug shot if available — but at the moment, this is all there is.
BTW, the arrest info here lines up with what we know about Paul publicly, especially his birthday — listed as April 15, 1940. Indeed, the guy’s 82 years old.
No word on whether the Speaker herself was with Paul during this bust — as you know, she’s often in D.C. for her job … but since it’s Memorial Day weekend, she could’ve possibly been back home with her family for a bit — but it seems unlikely. At the moment, it appears she’s in Rhode Island for a commencement speech to graduates there.
I would like to see all of the elected officials have random alcohol and drug testing. Many companies and businesses in America are required to do this. They are no better in DC and should have testing including mini-mental exams.
