Driving under the influence: Pelosi’s mega-millionaire husband could have saved thousands by calling an Uber

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s mega-millionaire husband allegedly drove under the influence of alcohol in Napa County, California, on Saturday night instead of calling an Uber or taxi, resulting in a car crash and thousands of dollars for his bail following his arrest on suspicion of drunk driving.

The California Highway Patrol said Paul Pelosi, 82, was driving a 2021 Porsche that was hit by a 2014 Jeep as Pelosi’s car tried to cross State Route 29 in Napa, according to multiple reports.

Neither of the drivers in the crash was injured, and an investigation is ongoing, the CHP said.

Paul Pelosi was arrested at 11:44 p.m. and charged with driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher as well as driving under the influence of alcohol, both misdemeanors. He was booked into Napa Valley Detention Center at 4:13 a.m. on Sunday with bail set at $5,000 and released at 7:26 a.m., according to Napa County records.
