Video footage of an altercation at the residence of Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul Pelosi, in San Francisco has been made public. The footage depicts the instant in which Mr. Pelosi answered the door and was assaulted by an individual wielding a hammer.
On Friday, officials from the law enforcement community made public a collection of audio and video recordings that document the events leading up to and following the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi.
The incident occurred in October at the Pelosi’s residence in San Francisco and involved the use of a hammer. Mr. Pelosi is 82 years old.
The video, which has gained widespread attention online, highlights the excessive and unjust nature of the violence depicted. It also provides information about the actions taken by Paul Pelosi to seek assistance and prompts considerations about the potential for additional intervention by the San Francisco police department.
A video recorded by a body camera worn by San Francisco police Officer Kolby Wilmes illustrates him and Officer Kyle Cagney as they knock on the door of a grand, three-story home in Pacific Heights. It is believed that the residence belongs to the Pelosi family.
The video footage does not suggest that the officers were aware of Paul Pelosi’s relationship to the then-U.S. House Speaker. However, it has been reported that Paul Pelosi identified himself as the husband of the Speaker to the 911 dispatcher who received his emergency call on multiple occasions.
According to the footage obtained by Mandy News, the individual who answered the door at the residence in Pacific Heights was identified as Paul Pelosi. The video shows that Mr. Pelosi and another individual, identified as DePape, were standing close to the doorway with their hands gripping hammers.
“Hi,” DePape said. “How are you doing?” An officer responded, “What’s going on, man?” “Everything’s good,” DePape said. “Drop the hammer!” an officer ordered. “Um, nope,” DePape responded.”
When instructed to put down the hammer, he responds, “uh, nope,” and engages Paul Pelosi in a struggle for it before pulling it away and striking him in the head. The police then barge inside and throw DePape to the ground.
Two days after San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy ruled that they should be made public, the shocking recordings were made available.
