The drink-driving scandal has escalated again. Paul Pelosi, the husband of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was arrested in May for driving under the influence of alcohol and will appear in court on Wednesday, according to newly disclosed court documents from a Fox News report for August 2.

Paul allegedly had drugs in his system and slurred his speech when questioned by police. According to the report, Paul's Porsche was involved in an accident on the night of May 28 and suffered "serious collision damage" to the vehicle.

Alcohol and Drugs

According to the report, Paul's Porsche was involved in an accident on the night of May 28 and suffered "serious collision damage" to the vehicle. When police asked him for identification, Paul showed them his driver's license and an 11-99 Foundation card, according to court documents. Fox News reported that the foundation is the charitable arm of the California Highway Patrol and provides support to police officers and scholarships for their children.

Paul showed "signs of impairment" during sobriety tests at the scene, and police observed symptoms related to alcohol poisoning, such as "redness and edema" in his eyes, the documents said. At the time, Paul was "unsteady on his feet, slurred his speech and smelled strongly of alcohol when he breathed." One of the charges in the court document reads that Paul allegedly injured others "under the combined influence of alcoholic beverages and drugs," the report added.

Fox News said Paul and the other driver, John Doe, both refused medical attention at the scene. But Mr. Doe told prosecutors on June 2 that he began experiencing pain in his right upper arm, shoulder, head, and neck the day after the accident, adding that he had difficulty lifting with his right arm.

「Put him Back in Jail」

According to US media reports, Paul was driving a Porsche when it collided with a jeep at an intersection near Yountville, a small city in Napa County, at 22:17 on May 28. Paul took a blood alcohol test, and the result was 0.082 percent or 82 milligrams per 100 milliliters of blood. Under California law, a blood alcohol level above 0.08 per 100 milliliters is considered drunk driving. US Patrol officers arrested Paul, who was released on $5,000 bail the next day. Ms. Pelosi's office said on May 29 that she was elsewhere when her husband was arrested and would not comment on the matter.

Based on the victim's injuries, the Napa County District attorney said it decided to charge Paul with two misdemeanor counts of "driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury" and "driving with a blood alcohol level above 0.08 percent causing injury." On August 1, the Napa County prosecutor said Paul would be prosecuted on suspicion of drunk driving on August 3 local time. If convicted of drink-driving, a criminal offense in the US, Paul could face a minimum of five days in jail and up to five years probation. He will also need to complete a traffic safety course and have his car fitted with a breathalyzer ignition lock device, meaning he must take a breath test before starting the vehicle. According to Fox News, many netizens called Paul an "insider trading enthusiast," with one quipping, "How do I get that magic card?" Another said, "No one should be above the law, and he should be prosecuted."  "Take him back to prison!"

Behind 「the Most Dangerous Woman」
Some say that Pelosi's recent trip to Asia may be a way to divert public attention from her family scandal. The New York Post reported last month that Paul bought a significant stake in semiconductor giant Nvidia ahead of a vote on a chip bill that would give the industry a $52 billion subsidy. Public opinion has questioned whether Paul got inside information from his wife. It is not the first time the Pelosi couple has made fortunes through their jobs. They have been derided as the "gods of Capitol Hill," and former President Donald Trump criticized Paul for his frequent stock trading.

Other members of Ms. Pelosi's family have also been dogged by scandal. According to Time magazine, Pelosi was born when her father, Thomas D 'Alessandro Jr., was already a Congressman. When she was seven, he became mayor of Baltimore. When she was seven, he became mayor of Baltimore. Mr. D 'Alessandro had ambitions to become governor but was thwarted by a corruption scandal over car park construction.

Author Rochelle Schweitzer called Pelosi "the most dangerous woman in America " in her 2010 book She's the Boss: The Disturbing Truth About Nancy Pelosi, Business Insider reported. From her father, whose political machine was tainted by scandal, Ms. Pelosi learned patronage, ruthlessness, and the party leader's creed: admit nothing, never apologize and attack when challenged, according to the book's blurb. She claims to be acting in the interests of the American people but has enriched her family's portfolio through legislation and personal financial transactions. Pelosi is a real political boss. Don't be fooled by her image. Pelosi cares all about her business.

The Pelosi couple has five children, and her only son, Paul Pelosi Jr., also seems to be continuing the family tradition. Earlier this year, Paul was investigated for the sixth time for alleged corruption, the Daily Mail reported. In the latest scandal, the New York Post said that several years ago, the company he worked for as a senior vice president allegedly sold consumer data to fraudsters who then used it to defraud the sick and gullible elderly.
