Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, was arrested Saturday in California and spent the night in jail for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to a court report released Sunday.
Pelosi, 82, was arrested Saturday night at 11:44 p.m. local time in wine-producing Napa County after police detected she was driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08% or higher.
The husband of the veteran House Speaker entered jail at 4:13 a.m. Sunday morning, and was released at 7:26 a.m. after posting $5,000 bail.
The Pelosis have been married since 1963 and have five children together.
Nancy Pelosi’s office avoided making any statement on the matter and limited itself to describing the incident as private.
