On Friday, law enforcement officials in San Francisco made public the body camera footage of an October attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The judge’s order to make the footage public came after a coalition of news outlets filed a motion to release it on January 11. This footage sheds new light on the attack and could provide insight into the motive behind it.

On October 28, the assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in an attempt to kidnap the then-House speaker, according to prosecutors at a pretrial hearing. The activist, identified as 42-year-old David DePape, instead attacked Paul Pelosi when he was unable to locate his wife.

Prosecutors revealed at a pretrial hearing that on October 28, a nudist activist had broken into the residence of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in an effort to kidnap her. When the man, identified as 42-year-old David DePape, could not find Nancy, he instead attacked her husband, Paul Pelosi.

San Francisco police responded to the Pelosi residence around 2:30 a.m. local time on the night of the attack between Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi and an assailant who allegedly had been armed with a hammer. An altercation ensued during which it was reported that the assailant “violently” assaulted Pelosi before fleeing the scene.
