House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband crashed a new Porsche just five miles from their multi-million-dollar California vineyard when he was busted for allegedly driving drunk, police documents revealed Monday.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was in a 2021 Porsche when he tried to get across State Route-29 in Napa Valley from a country lane close to other vineyards, just before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, his arrest report said.
As he attempted to cross the main road, “his Porsche was struck” by a 2014 Jeep driven by a 48-year-old local man, the document said. The other driver was not arrested.
There were no reported injuries and the police report did not assign blame for the crash. 
However, photos of the junction show Pelosi would have had to have driven through a stop sign to get on SR-29.
Pelosi was busted at 11:44 p.m. and booked into the Napa County Detention Center, records show.
He was charged with one count of driving under the influence and another for driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the online booking report shows. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Pelosi was released at 7:26 a.m. Sunday, three hours after he was booked into jail, on $5,000 bail, the records show.
The former venture capitalist has been married to the 82-year-old House Speaker since 1963, and the couple has five children together. They split their time between Washington, DC, and California, where she represents part of San Francisco.
The crash happened just five miles from where the Pelosis have a vineyard, River Run, in St. Helena, also just off RT-29 and about 65 miles north of San Fran.
They paid $2.35 million for it more than 30 years ago, and it is currently valued by California tax accessors at $4.6 million, records show.
However, as far back as 2014, the house speaker listed its value as between $5 million and $25 million in official records she filed at the time, the Los Angeles Times previously noted.
It features a “Z” shaped infinity pool overlooking the vineyards, the architect who sold it to them detailed of his work. The interior of the main house was inspired by Palladian villas and built to feel like an interior Zen Garden, the architect said.
