Paul Pelosi DUI court date set for Wednesday while


So how was your day, honey?

As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leads a delegation on a high-stakes visit to Taiwan that has roiled relations between China and the US, her husband will appear in court on DUI charges more than 6,000 miles away.

Paul Pelosi, 82, is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning on charges of driving under the influence causing injury and driving with a .08% blood alcohol level or higher causing injury, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release.

Paul Pelosi was arrested on May 28 after a man driving a 2014 Jeep crashed into Pelosi’s Porsche as he left for his and his wife’s vineyard after attending a dinner party.

The DA said Pelosi has not been ordered to appear in person and may be represented by an attorney who can enter a plea on his behalf.

Across the Pacific, Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan has alarmed China, which has responded by sending warplanes and ships across the imaginary maritime dividing line between the two countries in the Taiwan Strait.

Pelosi’s stay in Taiwan, part of a trip that includes Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan, has rankled Beijing, which considers the self-ruled island part of its territory and has threatened to take over the country by force if necessary.

Along the military maneuvers, China has continued to issue warnings to the US about Pelosi’s visit, repeating that America is “playing with fire.”

After Pelosi touched down in Taipei late Tuesday, China’s Foreign Ministry said the trip “gravely undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and sends a seriously wrong signal to the separatist forces for ‘Taiwan independence.’”

At the same time, the US Navy has moved four warships, including an aircraft carrier, into the waters east of Taiwan.
