FIRST ON FOX: A California law enforcement association said on Thursday it would review Paul Pelosi’s membership following reports he presented his membership card to officers when he was arrested for impaired driving in May. .

The California Highway Patrol 11-99 (CHP 11-99) Foundation has confirmed that any member who brings their name or property to law enforcement violates the group’s terms and conditions. The foundation noted the part of its policy which states that attempting to use membership in exchange for “preferential treatment” in any contact with the police will result in immediate dismissal.

“We will await the outcome of this lawsuit and assess Mr. Pelosi’s membership status once we have all the facts,” Laura Reed, a spokesperson for the group, told Fox News Digital in an email. “If he is found to have violated our terms and conditions, we will revoke his membership and request that all membership items be returned as they are the property of the 11-99 Foundation.”

“Once we receive these items, we will refund any contribution he has made to the Foundation,” she continued.

Reed added that the CHP 11-99 Foundation is aware of media reports, but said the incident involving Pelosi is an ongoing investigation and the foundation does not yet have all the facts.

Pelosi, who is the millionaire husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was arrested after he was involved in a car accident injuring another driver on the evening of May 28. According to court documents, Pelosi showed her CHP 11-99 ID along with her driver’s license after Highway Patrol officers asked for ID.

Fox News Digital was first to report that police alleged Pelosi gave officers a CHP 11-99 Foundation card when they asked him for his ID.

“These cards are used to identify our members at various public and private events and to show pride in membership and support of the CHP,” Reed said.

On Wednesday, Pelosi pleaded not guilty to two counts — DUI causing injury and driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher causing injury — stemming from the May 28 accident. He faces five years probation and a minimum of five days in jail.

The CHP 11-99 Foundation was founded in 1982 to provide emergency aid to California Highway Patrol employees and scholarships to their children, according to the group’s website. New members of the group are required to submit to criminal and conduct background checks to ensure the foundation’s reputation “remains intact”, according to Reed.

Pelosi’s attorney, Amanda Bevins, declined to comment.
