Paul Pelosi, the husband of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor driving under the influence charges related to a May car crash he caused in the Napa County city of Yountville, and was sentenced to five days in jail and three years of probation, according to authorities, IANS reported.

Paul Pelosi, 82, won’t serve any additional jail time after already serving two days and receiving conduct credit for two other days, Napa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Solga was quoted as saying by dpa news agency.

Pelosi was driving a 2021 Porsche and collided with a 2014 Jeep driven by a 48-year-old in Napa County, the California Highway Patrol said in May. He was arrested and administered a blood test that showed 0.082 per cent blood alcohol content, the Napa County district attorney’s office said. He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi have been married since 1963.
