Paul Pelosi, the multimillionaire husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, reportedly had a drug in his system, spoke to officers with slurred speech and tried to hand them a police card during his arrest in May on charges of DUI, according to court documents.
Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche and the other driver’s 2014 Jeep sustained “major collision damage” in the crash around 10:17 p.m. on May 28, and responding officers found Pelosi in the driver’s seat in his damaged car near the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road.
Pelosi allegedly gave officers his driver’s license and an “11-99 Foundation” card when they asked for his ID, according to the documents. The 11-99 Foundation is a California Highway Patrol charity that supports officers and provides scholarships for their children.
Pelosi reportedly showed “signs of deterioration” during field sobriety tests, and officers “observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication,” the documents said.

“He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred and he had a strong smell of alcoholic drink coming from his breath,” the indictment said.
The other driver, identified only as John Doe, was outside an SUV, according to the documents.

Both refused on-site medical treatment, but Doe told Napa County prosecutors on June 2 that he began to experience pain in his right arm, right shoulder and neck the day after the crash. He also complained of headaches and said it was difficult to lift things with his right arm, according to the documents.
Pelosi is said to have injured the other driver “while under the influence of an alcoholic drink and a drug and under their combined influence,” the first count in the two indictments reads.
