The judge in the case set Aug. 23 as the date for the next court proceeding – a settlement conference, for the possibility that Pelosi’s legal team and Napa County prosecutors will reach a deal ahead of a trial.
Paul Pelosi was charged last month following his arrest in May in connection with his collision with a Jeep at an intersection near Yountville, CA. Both vehicles reportedly sustained “major collision damage.” Police determined that Pelosi, 82, had a blood alcohol content of .082, above the legal limit. The criminal complaint also states he was under the combined “influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug.”
Police alleged that Pelosi’s eyes were “red/watery” and that he was “unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.”
The “John Doe” driving the Jeep involved in the collision reported pain in his arm, shoulders and neck following the incident, as well as headaches following the crash.
