U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was arrested for driving under the influence, according to the Napa County Criminal Justice Network’s public booking report.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested at 11:44 p.m. PT Saturday and charged with driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 per cent or higher, the public booking report says. Both charges are misdemeanours.
TMZ was the first to report the arrest.
Bail was set at US$5,000 according to the booking report and records indicate he was released Sunday morning.
CNN has reached out to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office for additional details.
“The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” a statement from Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s spokesperson, said.
The speaker was in Rhode Island on Sunday to speak at Brown University’s commencement ceremony.
Paul Pelosi, a native of San Francisco, has been married to Nancy Pelosi since 1963. The two have five children together.
