Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was arrested this weekend on suspicion of DUI in Northern California.
Paul Pelosi was taken into custody late Saturday in Napa County north of San Francisco, according to a sheriff’s office online booking report.
He could face charges including driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the report said.
Pelosi’s bail was set for $5,000 for the two misdemeanors.
Drew Hammill, spokesperson for Nancy Pelosi, told The Associated Press: “The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
The House speaker was in Providence, Rhode Island, on Sunday, where she delivered the commencement address at Brown University.
