According to the public booking report, bail was granted to Paul Pelosi at $5,000 and he was released on Sunday morning, reported CNN.
A statement from Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s spokesperson, said, “The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
