House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, will be arraigned Wednesday morning in a central California court on charges including driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury.

Pelosi will enter his plea in Napa County Superior Court to "Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol Causing Injury and Driving With .08% Blood Alcohol Level or Higher Causing Injury," the Napa County District Attorney's Office said Monday.

Pelosi was charged last month following his arrested in May in connection with his Porsche collided with a Jeep at an intersection near Yountville, Calif., police said.

The Democrat House speaker is leading a congressional trip to the Indo-Pacific region and does not plan to attend her husband's arrangement.
