Paul Pelosi released from hospital nearly a week after hammer attack

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has returned home from the hospital six days after being attacked by an intruder with a hammer inside his home.

Pelosi reportedly had a fracture to his skull and injuries to his right arm and hands after the attack by David DePape.

Pelosi’s statement

Nancy Pelosi confirmed her husband’s release from the hospital in a statement.

“Paul is grateful to the 911 operator, emergency responders, trauma care team, ICU staff, and the entire [Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital] medical staff for their excellent and compassionate life-saving treatment he received after the violent assault in our home,” she said.

The charges

“DePape pleaded not guilty to state charges, including attempted murder, residential burglary and assault with a deadly weapon, during an arraignment on Tuesday,” ABC News reported.

“He has been ordered held without bail and a preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Friday. He has yet to be arraigned on federal charges of assault and attempted kidnapping,” it added.

Growing speculation has arisen regarding the crime, with many questioning the home’s security.

Others are concerned that the bodycam footage from officers responding to the incident is not being released, further adding to questions about the attack.

Despite the investigation, it’s good news to hear Pelosi is able to return home as he recovers from the violent incident.
