Paul Pelosi attack: A grand jury indicts David DePape following an alleged hammer attack

Paul Pelosi's alleged attacker was indicted on Wednesday by a federal grand jury after allegedly violently attacking the House speaker's husband.

On Wednesday, a federal grand jury indicted David DePape (42), after he allegedly broke into Pelosi’s San Francisco home on Oct. 28th and attacked Nancy Pelosi’s husband.

According to court documents, DePape is accused of attacking Paul Pelosi in an alleged break-in at his residence. He claimed that he was “sick” of the “insane f—ing level lies coming out Washington, D.C.” and wanted to take Nancy Pelosi hostage.

Paul Pelosi, who was attacked shortly after 2 AM, was taken to a local hospital for surgery to fix a skull fracture and other injuries.

DePape faces one count each of assault on a family member of an American official in retaliation against him and one count each of attempted kidnapping a U.S. officer in retaliation for his performance of official duties.

DePape could be sentenced to a maximum 30 year term for the assault charge and 20 years for attempted kidnapping.

DePape pleaded guilty to the following state-level charges in court on Nov. 1. These include attempted murder and residential burglary as well as assault with a deadly weapons and elder abuse.

According to the Department of Justice, Paul Pelosi called 911 and police officers arrived within minutes. They “encounter Paul Pelosi & DePape fighting over a hammer,” he said.
