Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was “violently assaulted” during a break-in at the couple’s California home early Friday, her office said in a statement.
Drew Hammill, spokesman for Nancy Pelosi, said in the statement:
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi. The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation. Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time.
“The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
Paul Pelosi, 82, was convicted of a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of alcohol after being involved in an auto accident in May. He was sentenced to five days in jail in Napa County, California. He owns a San Francisco-based real estate and venture capital firm.
