Paul Pelosi to be arraigned on DUI causing injury

The district attorney said that misdemeanor charges were filed "based upon the extent of the injuries suffered by the victim." It's unclear what those injuries are and the driver of the Jeep was not arrested. 
Pelosi or his defense counsel will enter a plea at the arraignment on Wednesday. A defendant in a misdemeanor DUI case does not have to be present in the courtroom for an arraignment under California law.  The district attorney said when charges were filed in June that the punishment for DUI causing injury as a misdemeanor "includes up to five years of probation, a minimum of five days in jail, installation of an ignition interlock device, fines and fees, completion of a court ordered drinking driver class, and other terms as appropriate."
