Following a recent DUI arrest, a court date has been set for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, though no decision has been made on whether he will face criminal charges.
Paul Pelosi agreed to a court date of Aug. 3 at 8:30 a.m. in Napa County Superior Court, announced Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley.
He will be arraigned at that time if criminal charges are filed. Haley’s office is currently reviewing charges stemming from the DUI arrest in May of Paul Pelosi in Napa County, California, said Haley.
“The case is currently under review to decide what, if any, charges will be filed against Mr. Pelosi. This is standard protocol for any DUI case that is referred by a law enforcement agency in Napa County,” she said.

He was booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections, cited and released.
“No decision has been made at this time. Any speculation to the contrary is incorrect. When a filing decision is made by the Napa County District Attorney, the media and public will be notified,” Haley added, as also reported.
