On Wednesday, he did not appear in person at Napa County Superior Court. Instead, his lawyer Amanda Bevins entered not guilty pleas.

After a May crash in Napa County, he was arrested. A blood sample was taken approximately two hours later, at 10.17pm.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Pelosi was driving a 2021 Porsche through an intersection near Yountville and collided with a Jeep 2014.

Because of the injuries suffered by the driver, 48-years-old, the prosecution filed the case as an offense.

The police did not provide any details about the injuries nor additional information on the other driver.

Pelosi was released with a $5,000 bail (PS4,100). If convicted, he will spend at least five days in prison and up to five years probation.

Prosecutors said that he would be required to complete a drink-driver course and to install an ignition interlock system in his car. This is a breathalyser that requires drivers to blow into before they can operate the vehicle.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi were married in 1963.
