Court docs reveal Paul Pelosi at fault for DUI accident that injured other driver, attempted to influence way out of trouble

It was on May 28 that Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), was arrested and charged with driving under the influence following a car accident he was involved in on his drive home from a dinner party, but the mainstream media largely downplayed the incident as no big deal.

Court documents reveal, however, that Pelosi was likely drunker and the accident more severe than initially reported, as the other driver sustained injuries from the wreck, Breitbart reported.

Further, the documents seem to suggest that Pelosi may have attempted to bribe or influence his way out of potential trouble by handing over a card that showed he was a member of a charitable organization that supports California Highway Patrol employees and their families.

It was all worse than initially reported

The New York Post obtained a copy of the official complaint filed in court against Paul Pelosi in regard to the incident in which Pelosi’s Porsche and the other driver’s Jeep met catastrophically in an intersection.

The complaint filed by CHP officers said of Pelosi, “His eyes appears red/watery, he was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath.”

It also noted that Pelosi failed a field sobriety test but somehow — perhaps due to a delay in testing — only registered a 0.082 percent blood-alcohol content, which is just barely above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

As for the wreck, initially dismissed by some as a minor fender-bender caused by the other driver hitting Pelosi, the complaint described both vehicles as suffering “major collision damage” and it was determined that Pelosi had been at fault for that collision — perhaps because Pelosi pulled out in front of the other driver, as Pelosi’s own attorney noted that the Jeep had struck the rear end of the Porsche.

The complaint further noted that both Pelosi and the other driver had declined medical treatment at the time of the accident, but that other driver reportedly began to suffer headaches as well as pain in his arms, shoulders, and neck, as well as difficulty lifting objects, in the days after the crash occurred.

Attempted to play the privilege card and influence his way out of trouble

Fox News also reported on the court documents filed against Paul Pelosi and noted how the complaint seemed to indicate that Pelosi had attempted to assert his privilege and status as a way to avoid any trouble following the accident.

According to the complaint, when asked by officers for his identification, Pelosi handed over his driver’s license along with an “11-99 Foundation” card. The 11-99 Foundation is a charitable organization that provides financial support for CHP officers as well as scholarships for their children to attend school.

Fox noted that the information about the injuries and extent of the damage caused in the wreck had previously been withheld from the public by the police.

Pelosi, who was bailed out of jail for $5,000 the morning after the accident, was scheduled for an arraignment hearing Wednesday, but the Post reported that he was unlikely to attend that hearing and instead would be represented in his absence by his attorney.
