Update: Paul Pelosi was allegedly involved in a two-vehicle car crash the night of his arrest, TMZ reported Monday.

Paul Pelosi, the husband of Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was reportedly arrested Saturday night in Napa County after allegedly being involved in a two-vehicle crash.

Pelosi, 82, was arrested around 11:45 p.m. and later taken to Napa County Detention Center for one count of allegedly driving under the influence and one count of allegedly driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher, which are both misdemeanors in the state of California, TMZ reported. A Jeep struck the 2021 Porsche that he was driving, and there were no injuries, according to the outlet.

The name and information on the arrest record align with the physical description of Pelosi, as well as his date of birth which is April 15, 1940, TMZ noted.

Pelosi was held on $5,000 bail, and it is unclear whether that has been paid at this time, the outlet continued. (RELATED: Pelosi Says Biden Polls Poorly Because Americans Simply Don’t Know How Good He’s Been)

It is unknown whether the Speaker was in the car with her husband at the time, and none of their immediate family have made any public statements on the matter, TMZ noted. The speaker is reportedly in Rhode Island giving the Commencement Oration at Brown University, where she will also be receiving an honorary doctorate degree, according to her Twitter feed.

Paul and Nancy Pelosi have been married since 1963, according to The Sun. He is a venture capitalist, focusing on real estate and consulting out of his offices in San Francisco, the outlet noted.
