House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi was back in the news early Friday morning.
The Speaker’s husband was reportedly “violently assaulted” by an intruder who broke into the couple’s home in San Francisco, reports said.
The assailant was taken into custody and Paul Pelosi was rushed to a nearby hospital. Officials say he is expected to make a full recovery. Police do not yet have a motive.
Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, said: “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,” the statement continued.
“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 statement continued.
“The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
Earlier this year, Paul Pelosi was involved in a vehicular crash while he was under the influence of alcohol.
