Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested following the May 28 crash in Napa County, north of San Francisco, after a DUI test showed he had a blood alcohol content level of .082%. The blood sample was taken about two hours after the collision occurred at 10:17 p.m., the Napa County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.
He was driving a 2021 Porsche into an intersection near the town of Yountville and was hit by a 2014 Jeep, according to the California Highway Patrol.
He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with a .08% blood alcohol level or higher causing injury.

Prosecutors said that under California law, the charges can be filed as a felony or a misdemeanor.
"Based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim, the District Attorney filed misdemeanor charges,” the office said.
The office didn't describe the injuries of the 48-year-old Jeep driver or give any other information about the person, saying they have requested privacy. The driver of the Jeep was not arrested.
Larry Kamer, a spokesperson for Paul Pelosi, declined to comment on the charges Thursday. An email seeking comment from Nancy Pelosi's office wasn't immediately returned.
After his arrest, Paul Pelosi was released on $5,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 3. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.

He would also be required to complete a drinking driver class and install an ignition interlock device in his vehicle - a breathalyzer that requires the driver to blow into it before operating the vehicle, prosecutors said.
Paul and Nancy Pelosi have been married since 1963.
