Pelosi’s husband faces impaired driving charge in California

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was charged with driving under the influence in Napa County, Calif., on Saturday night, according to the county’s website.

Bail for Mr Pelosi, 82, has been set at $5,000. County records show he was released Sunday morning. The charge he faces is a misdemeanor.

Ms. Pelosi, a Democrat, has not spoken publicly about the arrest. On Sunday, she gave a commencement speech at Brown University. News of her husband’s arrest was reported by TMZ.

A spokesman for Ms Pelosi, Drew Hammill, said she was not with her husband during the incident.

‘The speaker will not comment on this private matter, which occurred while she was on the East Coast,’ Mr Hammill said in an email on Sunday.

Mr. Pelosi, an investor who has generally avoided the spotlight, runs Financial Leasing Services, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm.

This year, as efforts to ban stock trading by members of Congress gained momentum, Mr. Pelosi’s sophisticated and lucrative trades drew attention. Investors on TikTok and other platforms have scrutinized Ms. Pelosi’s stock disclosures and mimicked her investments.

Mr. Pelosi and Mrs. Pelosi own a vineyard in Napa Valley. The couple met at Georgetown University and married in 1963.
