During the traffic stop that put Paul Pelosi in jail, he showed officers his law enforcement membership card in attempts to get out of a DUI.
The District Attorney is not releasing the police body cam footage detailing the arrest of Paul Pelosi. Fox News Jesse Watters threatened to sue the county for not releasing the mug shot and is now threatening to sue the county for the police body cam.
Not releasing the police body cam footage and the new information that has come to light lit a fire under Jesse Watters as he said, “They’re still hiding the 911 call. If the charges were upgraded to a felony, Paul could be looking at six years in the slammer. There is a lot riding on the DA’s office keeping this a misdemeanor.”
According to Fox News, “The California Highway Patrol 11-99 (CHP 11-99) Foundation confirmed that any member who brings its name or property into law enforcement contact is in violation of the group’s terms and conditions agreement. The foundation noted the part of its policy which states that attempting to use membership in exchange for ‘preferential treatment’ in any contact with police will result in immediate termination.”
The foundation’s spokesperson Laura Reed told Fox News, “We will await the outcome of this trial and will evaluate Mr. Pelosi’s membership status once we have all of the facts.”
She said, “If it is proven he violated our terms and conditions, we will revoke his membership and we would request that all membership items be returned as they are property of the 11-99 Foundation.” She added, “Once we receive those items, we would issue a refund of any contribution he’s made to the Foundation.”
“These cards are used to identify our members at various public and private events and to show pride in membership and support of the CHP,” Reed said.
The Speaker of the House’s husband had attorney Amanda Bevins appear on behalf of his in a Napa County Superior Court Judge Monique Langhorne. His legal team pleaded not guilty on both counts of the DUI charges.
Pelosi is facing two charges, driving with a blood alcohol level of .08%, causing injury, and DUI causing injury, both misdemeanors.
Fox News reported, “Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche and the other driver’s 2014 Jeep sustained “major collision damage” in a crash around 10:17 p.m. on May 28. The responding officer found Pelosi in his driver’s seat in his damaged car near the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road.”
Pelosi’s attorney said, “Several news reports about Saturday night’s traffic incident involving Paul Pelosi have included incorrect information. Mr. Pelosi was attending a dinner party at the home of friends near Oakville.”
Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hamill released a statement, “The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
