Napa County, California prosecutors have walked back a drug allegation in the DUI complaint against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi.
The prosecutors have called it a “boilerplate” drug allegation.
“Napa prosecutors released the criminal complaint against Paul Pelosi in which it stated he had injured a driver ‘while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence,'” reports Breitbart.

Later, the prosecutors stated that the word “drug” was just boilerplate language.
“I believe that the drug reference is part of the statutory boilerplate language in the complaint,” Pelosi’s attorney Amanda Bevins said.
The “boilerplate” assertion was later confirmed by the Napa County District Attorney’s Office office.
“She is correct. It is boilerplate language auto-generated in the complaint. Our theory is alcohol,” Assistant District Attorney Paul Gero said.
“On May 28, police arrested Paul Pelosi after his 2021 Porsche collided with a 2014 Jeep on a Highway 29 intersection. His blood alcohol level stood at .082 percent; the California legal limit is .08 percent. The two charges filed by the Napa district attorney include “driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a .08% blood alcohol level or higher and causing injury,” according to Breitbart News.
