Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley said the DUI case is still under review and that she has not made a decision on what, if any, charges will be brought against Paul Pelosi. If charges are brought against him, the speaker’s husband will be arraigned at that time.

“No decision has been made at this time,” Haley said, according to Fox News. “Any speculation to the contrary is incorrect. When a filing decision is made by the Napa County district attorney, the media and public will be notified.”
