Paul Pelosi gets a slap on the wrist for driving drunk, won’t see jail time

As many feared, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) drunk-driving husband is getting off with a slap on the wrist.

Venture capitalist Paul Pelosi is a free man after pleading guilty to a DUI and receiving just five days in prison with time served, Breitbart reported.

Sentenced to five days

Pelosi served two days in prison and received another two days’ conduct credit. He will get a third day of credit for working an eight-hour shift in the court’s work program.

In addition, Pelosi will serve three years’ probation, pay a $7,000 fine, complete a three-month drunk-driver course, and install an ignition interlock device in his car. It’s beans for Pelosi, a multi-millionaire whose stock trades have long raised suspicions.

Pelosi crashed his Porsche during a drunken joyride in May not far from a vineyard he owns with his wife in California’s Napa Valley.

While crossing a road, Pelosi drove past a stop sign and right into the path of another man driving a Jeep.

Responding officers noted that Pelosi was “unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.”

Dashcam video released

Pelosi flashed his membership card for the 11-99 foundation, which provides benefits to California Highway Patrol officers. Still, he was taken into custody and found to have a BAC of .082 percent, above the legal limit.

Following Pelosi’s guilty plea, the California Highway Patrol finally released a dashcam video of Pelosi on the night of his May 28 arrest, Fox News reported. In the video, Pelosi can be heard slurring his speech as officers make comments about his inebriated condition.

“He’s constantly grabbing onto the patrol car just to keep his balance,” one of the officers said.

The police also shared photos of Pelosi’s hands and arms all bruised up, as well a sign and fence that Pelosi destroyed.

The other driver, who has not been named, was left with headaches and pain in his upper right arm, right shoulder and neck after the accident.
