Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was arrested for alleged drunk driving after a two-vehicle collision in their home state of California late Saturday, according to the California Highway Patrol and court records.

The CHP says Pelosi, 82, was driving a 2021 Porsche that was hit by 2014 Jeep as Pelosi’s car tried to cross a state road in Napa County. Pelosi was arrested at the Napa County Detention Center for two DUI-related charges.

He was released Sunday morning on $5,000 bail, court records show.

No one was hurt and the Jeep’s driver wasn’t arrested, the CHP added.

“The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” a spokesperson for Pelosi told CBS News.

Nancy Pelosi was in Rhode Island Saturday delivering the commencement address at Brown University.

News of Paul Pelosi’s arrest was first reported by TMZ.
