Nancy Pelosi’s husband killed his older brother when he flipped his sports car near San Mateo 65 years before his weekend arrest for drunk driving in Napa Valley, the Daily Mail reports.
Paul Pelosi was a high school sophomore when his sports car flipped over in February 1957 on a tight curve on Skyline Highway. According to newspaper reports at the time, Paul, 16 was to be cited for misdemeanor manslaughter in the death of his brother David, who was 19.
However, there was no court case and he was exonerated by a coroner’s jury.
Paul Pelosi, now 82, was driving a 2021 Porsche into an intersection near the town of Yountville and was hit by a 2014 Jeep on Saturday night, according to the California Highway Patrol.
No injuries were reported, and the 48-year-old driver of the Jeep was not arrested.
The husband of the House speaker could face misdemeanor charges including driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the police booking report said. He was released early Sunday on $5,000 bail, records showed.
