Pelosi was also ordered to pay a standard DUI fine of $1,723 and a standard refund fine of $150. He did not appear in court for his conviction, but was represented by his attorney, Amanda Bevins. Bevins said Pelosi had no statement on the matter.
Pelosi, 82, was arrested at the time of the May 28 crash, and records show he had been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and a count of driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher that caused injury.
Pelosi changed his plea after initially pleading innocent at a hearing this month. He originally faced two charges, but under the agreement reached on Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to only one — violating California Vehicle Code 23153(a).
The crash occurred in California’s wine country, near Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by Fox News. Officers at the scene said Pelosi was found in the driver’s seat of his Porsche, while the driver of an SUV stood outside his own vehicle; Both vehicles suffered “major collision damage”, according to the complaint.
The complaint alleges that Pelosi had red and watery eyes, slurred speech and a strong smell of alcohol in his breath, and that he showed “signs of impairment” in field sobriety tests. The complaint also alleged that when officers asked Pelosi for his identification, he gave his driver’s license and a card to the “11-99 Foundation,” a charity that supports California Highway Patrol families.
The SUV driver was not named and both he and Pelosi refused medical treatment, according to the complaint. The document claims that the SUV driver later suffered from shoulder and neck pain, headaches and difficulty lifting things with his right arm.
According to Bevins, Pelosi was previously ordered to pay the other driver involved in the crash $4,927.53 directly in refund fines, which he has already done. Bevins said the court has reserved refunds on Tuesday if the other driver has additional requests.
A spokesperson for the President of the House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
