The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has released details of the vehicle crash that led to the arrest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband late Saturday night for allegedly driving under the influence.

CHP said in a press release Sunday night that Paul Pelosi’s 2021 Porsche was struck in Napa Valley by a 2014 Jeep as he was attempting to cross State Route 29. No injuries were reported, and Pelosi was arrested about 80 minutes after law enforcement responded to the scene, according to the agency.

A public booking report by the Napa County Sheriff’s Office lists Paul Pelosi as being booked early Sunday morning on charges of driving under the influence. His bail was set at $5,000.

A representative for Pelosi told CBS News that he had been at a dinner party in Oakville until about 10:15 p.m., and drove the “short distance” home by himself. They added he was “fully cooperative” with authorities and that processing took until 7:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The arrest was first reported by TMZ.

Speaker Pelosi was in Rhode Island on Sunday to deliver Brown University’s commencement address. Drew Hammill, a spokesman for the Speaker, said on Sunday that she was not with her husband at the time and would not be commenting on the matter.

Nancy and Paul Pelosi have been married since 1963.
