House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul, was arrested Saturday night and charged with driving under the influence, according to media news outlet TMZ.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested just before midnight. His blood alcohol content was registered at 0.08 or higher. His bail was set for $5,000 for the two misdemeanors: driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher.
No other details were immediately available. California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay said more information would be released later Sunday.
Drew Hammill, spokesperson for Nancy Pelosi, told The Associated Press: "The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast."
The House speaker was in Providence, Rhode Island, on Sunday, where she delivered the commencement address at Brown University.
Paul and Nancy Pelosi have been married since 1963.
