Paul Pelosi Tried ‘Get Out of Jail Free Card’ with Police during DUI Arrest, Court Documents Show

Paul Pelosi, the wealthy husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, tried to use a “get out of jail free card” with police during his recent DUI arrest, court documents have revealed.

When he was asked for his license, Paul Pelosi handed the cops a police donor courtesy card.

The documents show that Pelosi handed officers an “11-99 Foundation” card when they asked for his ID.

The 11-99 Foundation is a California Highway Patrol charity that provides support for officers and gives scholarships to their children.

As many have suggested on social media, the move appeared to be an attempt to get the cops on side.

However, the police officers ignored the effort and arrested Pelosi anyway.

Pelosi is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on a pair of DUI charges.

He reeked of alcohol, failed his sobriety test, and slurred his speech when talking to police officers, according to the complaint.

The complaint reveals that police believe Pelosi may have also had a drug in his system at the time of his drunk driving crash.

“His eyes appears red/watery, he was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath,” the complaint reads.

Paul caused the crash “while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence,” the complaint states.

It’s not clear what that drug was but Pelosi’s lawyer claims that the cops used “boilerplate language.”

Pelosi allegedly injured the other driver “while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence,” the first count in the two-charge complaint reads.

Investigators later determined he had a blood-alcohol content of .082%.

Pelosi’s attorney, Amanda Bevins, told Fox News Digital, “I believe that the drug reference is part of the statutory boilerplate language in the complaint.”
