The photo shows Pelosi moments after being detained by police. It is the only artifact that has been made public involved in his arrest.
The Napa County District Attorney’s Office, however, say that it will not release dash or body cam footage from Paul Pelosi’s DUI arrest because it could “jeopardize” the investigation, which is still ongoing.
“The Public Records Unit (PRU) has determined the Department possesses records responsive to your request,” the California Highway Patrol Unit told Fox News Digital.
“However, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office has advised the release of records would jeopardize an ongoing investigation. As such, records are being withheld pursuant to Government Code section 6254 (f).”
Pelosi, the husband of Nancy, was arrested on May 29 for alleged drunken driving. It is not known if he will face criminal charges.
In a statement released after his arrest in May, Paul Pelosi’s lawyer said: “Mr. Pelosi was attending a dinner party at the home of friends near Oakville. He left that party at 10:15 pm Saturday, to drive to his home a short distance away. He was alone in his car.
“Mr. Pelosi was fully cooperative with California Highway Patrol officers who arrived a few minutes later.'””
Pelosi Spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement following the arrest that “The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
Paul Pelosi “was arrested just before midnight Saturday night in Napa County, and then booked hours later into jail on two counts — driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher … both misdemeanors,” TMZ reported.
“Paul Pelosi was taken into custody late Saturday in Napa County north of San Francisco, according to a sheriff’s office online booking report. He could face charges including driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the report said,” the Associated Press reported.
“Pelosi’s bail was set for $5,000 for the two misdemeanors, records showed. No other details were immediately available. California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay said more information would be released later Sunday,” the AP report added.
