The California Highway Patrol (CHP) refused on Thursday to release the body cam footage of Paul Pelosi’s DUI arrest because it could “jeopardize” the investigation.
“The Public Records Unit (PRU) has determined the Department possesses records responsive to your request,” the CHP said in response to a query from Fox News. “However, the Napa County District Attorney’s Office has advised the release of records would jeopardize an ongoing investigation. As such, records are being withheld pursuant to Government Code section 6254 (f).”

Fox News reported:
Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, was arrested in California for DUI on May 29. No decision has been made on whether he will face criminal charges.
Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley announced Thursday that Pelosi agreed to a court date of Aug. 3 at 8:30 a.m. in Napa County Superior Court.
If criminal charges are filed, he will be arraigned at that time.
The 82-year-old was booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections, cited and released.
“The case is currently under review to decide what, if any, charges will be filed against Mr. Pelosi,” Haley said. “This is standard protocol for any DUI case that is referred by a law enforcement agency in Napa County.”
Breitbart noted that Pelosi “could face misdemeanor charges such as driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.”
