Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was arrested on Saturday for allegedly driving under the influence in Northern California, The Associated Press reported.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was arrested at 11:44 p.m in Napa County and was charged with two misdemeanors: driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher, according to CNN.

The Speaker of the House was not with her husband at the time, The New York Times reported. Instead, Nancy Pelosi was at Brown University in Rhode Island on Sunday to give a commencement speech.

Nancy Pelosi’s spokesperson said, “The speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
