California Highway Patrol has released photos and videos from the May 28th car crash caused by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband, Paul Pelosi, who was drunk at the time of the crash.
In the video, Pelosi appears to be significantly slurring his words and showed what police described as “objective” signs of intoxication. The video also shows police asking Pelosi to perform field sobriety tests. Pelosi also allegedly tested above the legal blood alcohol limit more than two hours after he had his last drink.

“Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche and the other driver’s 2014 Jeep sustained ‘major collision damage’ in a crash around 10:17 p.m. on May 28, and responding officers found Pelosi in his driver’s seat in his damaged car near the intersection of Commie California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road,” Fox News reported. “Pelosi told the officers he started drinking around 7 p.m. and finished around 8. After stops at the hospital, the local CHP office and finally the county jail, investigators determined he had a blood-alcohol content of .082%.”
According to Fox News, a criminal complaint of the incident said that Pelosi allegedly exhibited “signs of impairment” during field sobriety tests and police officers “observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.” Pelosi’s eyes also appeared “red and watery” and he was “unsteady on his feet.”
“He’s constantly grabbing onto the patrol car just to keep his balance,” one officer can be heard saying to another office in the video.
On Tuesday, Paul Pelosi was sentenced to five days in jail and three years of probation for the crash. Pelosi will get credit for the two days that he already served and will also receive credit for two more days due to alleged good behavior.
