Deborah Pauly, Assembly Candidate Arrested for DUI

ANAHEIM, Calif. – At around 1 a.m. on Sep. 12, Deborah Pauly, a candidate for assembly and a former Villa Park city council member crashed into a parked, unoccupied vehicle and was arrested for driving under the influence.

Pauly, 56, was behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 when she collided with a parked Mazda pickup truck in the 100 block of Minot Street in the early morning hours of Sep. 12, according to Anaheim police Lt. Eric Trapp. Pauly’s whereabouts before the crash has not been released.

According to Trapp, an Anaheim police officer had Pauly submit to a field sobriety test at the scene of the accident, but she failed the test.

Pauly was arrested and booked into the Anaheim Temporary Detention Facility under for DUI and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or greater, said Trapp.

Due to the pending criminal case, Anaheim police would not provide Pauly’s exact BAC.

Trapp said that Pauly was released from jail on a written promise that she would appear in court. Her arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 26 in Orange County North Justice Center in Fullerton.

Pauly Cited ‘Personal Issues’

On Sep. 28, Pauly claimed that “personal issues” contributed to the incident.

In a written statement, Pauly said that in the midst of launching her campaign for assembly, in August her husband filed for divorce after 32 years of marriage. She stressed that this very painful personal circumstance was no excuse to take full responsibility for her lapse.

She said the incident was a reminder to stay focused on her campaign and to maintain her high personal standards of character and conduct.

Pauly called her DUI “completely uncharacteristic” and asked for understanding, compassion, prayers and forgiveness. She said that this shall pass and she’ll be stronger because of it. Ultimately, she said, persevering through this challenge will make her a better person and legislator.

Pauly, a Republican, is running against Harry Sidhu in the 2016 election to replace Don Wagner, R-Irvine. The district spans from Anaheim Hills to Lake Forest.
