(RepublicanInformer.com)- The Napa County Department of Corrections made the Paul Pelosi booking photo public on Monday. Pelosi was taken into custody on May 28 on suspicion of driving under the influence, which led to his detention.
According to the court documents, Pelosi, who is 82 years old and worth millions of dollars, is accused of driving with a blood-alcohol level higher than the legal limit of .08 percent. His wife is Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives. In the past, both the California Highway Patrol and the county sheriff’s department had denied requests for additional information or photographs in the case, giving the reason that the investigation was still ongoing.
Even a summary of any injuries or property damage that may have occurred has been suppressed.
A spokesperson for the county said on Monday that in Napa County, the decision to release or withhold mugshots or booking photos lies with the Napa County Department of Corrections, not the District Attorney’s Office. Following Mr. Pelosi’s arrest, Napa County complied with the policy established by the Department of Corrections governing the distribution of booking images and mugshots. In accordance with that procedure, Mr. Pelosi was given the same treatment as all other inmates who were later released from the County Jail.
According to the authorities, the snapshot was taken at approximately 4:30 a.m. on May 29. This was several hours after the CHP had apprehended him near Yountville in Napa County.
According to the authorities, the sheriff’s office does not operate the Napa County Jail, which is different from other counties in the state of California. It falls under the jurisdiction of a county Department of Corrections, which reports to the Board of Supervisors.
Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche was damaged when a driver of a 2014 Jeep collided with it at an intersection on May 28 at approximately 11:45 p.m., according to an earlier statement released by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The second driver was not taken into custody by the police because there were no reported injuries at the scene.
According to the records, Pelosi paid $5,000 to get out of his predicament the following morning.
The office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has previously stated that it will not comment on the event, which according to a spokeswoman, took place while the speaker was on the east coast.
