Pelosi Distancing Herself from Husband's Arrest, First Statement Mentions She Had Nothing to Do with It

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi distanced herself -- almost literally -- from her husband’s drunk driving arrest after a crash over the weekend.

A statement issued by Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesman, drew attention to the fact that the speaker was a continent away from her husband, Paul, at the time of the incident. Nancy Pelosi was the speaker Sunday for the commencement of Brown University in Rhode Island.

"The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast,” the statement said.

According to Reuters, Paul Pelosi was arrested late Saturday night after a two-vehicle crash in which the 2021 Porsche he was driving was struck by a Jeep while trying to cross State Route 29 in Napa County — a region north of San Francisco famous for being wine country.

There were no injuries reported and the other driver was not cited in the crash, according to Reuters.

Pelosi's political opponents weren't shy about drawing attention to her husband's arrest.

The website TMZ first reported the arrest.

An arrest sheet reproduced by TMZ showed that the arrest took place shortly before midnight and that Paul Pelosi was booked into jail at about 4 a.m.

According to the sheet, Paul Pelosi faces two misdemeanor charges — driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.

A report in the New York Post said Paul Pelosi was released at 7:26 a.m.

Paul Pelosi has been a successful investor in stocks. The website Celebrity Net Worth puts Paul and Nancy Pelosi's net worth at $120 million.
