Pelosi, 82, was driving at an intersection near the town of Yountville, in Napa County, California, when his 2021 Porsche was hit by a 2014 jeep, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement Monday morning.
The financier was taken into custody just before midnight and held against $5,000 bail, according to a public booking report on the Napa County government website. According to booking records, he was released just before 7:30 am on Sunday morning.
No injuries were reported. The other driver has not been arrested.
Pelosi can be charged with misdemeanor, including drink-driving and driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, according to the booking report.
“The Speaker will not comment on this private matter that occurred while she was on the East Coast,” her deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill said in a statement to HuffPost on Sunday.
Nancy Pelosi was in Rhode Island on Sunday to give an opening address at Brown University. The couple has been married since 1963.
