Nancy Pelosi’s husband arrested for DUI in Napa, Twitter uncorks brutal response

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s multi-millionaire husband Paul Pelosi was arrested for driving under the influence late Saturday night near the couple’s sprawling Napa Valley estate, being taken into custody by the California Highway Patrol after he was found to have a blood alcohol limit in excess of what is allowable under the law.

The 82-year-old spouse of the most powerful female politician in U.S. history was popped a few minutes short of midnight and booked a little over four hours later on two misdemeanor charges, driving under the influence along with driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher. His bail was set at $5,000 according to information posted online from the Napa County Criminal Justice Network.

The news of Pelosi’s arrest was first reported by TMZ.

Details of the intervention by law enforcement as well as Mr. Pelosi’s mugshot were not currently available, Madame Speaker was out of town at the time of her husband’s arrest.

Nancy Pelosi was on the east coast where she delivered the commencement address at Brown University, she made no mention of the incident during her speech to the Ivy League students.

A spokesperson for Mrs. Pelosi told CBS News, “The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”

As could be expected, the Twitter response was absolutely savage as users uncorked their takes.

“In Paul Pelosi’s defense, if you were married to Nancy Pelosi, you’d probably be an alcoholic too,” wrote one user.

Other frothy reactions to the news.

The power couple has had amazing success in accumulating mountains of money through the stock market, seeming to “always know what the right investment is” as they have accumulated over $315,000,000 in wealth as of 2020, far exceeding the chump change of Madame Speaker’s salary as a public servant.

Her hubby’s DUI bust will likely only confirm the suspicions of those who have long harbored suspicions that Pelosi is a hardcore juicer who recently drew criticism over the new liquor store for House members who can have their favorite alcoholic libations delivered to them in their offices. Ted Kennedy would be proud.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi were married in 1963.
