Additional Footage Emerges Showing Suspect Breaking Into Pelosi Home; 911 Call Released | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Law enforcement officials released additional footage on Friday that allegedly showed suspect David DePape breaking into the home of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) late last year.

    A San Francisco judge ordered that the footage be made public after a coalition of news outlets filed a motion to release the footage on January 11.

    The clip allegedly showing DePape breaking into the home featured him dropping bags onto the ground, going through them to find a hammer, and then taking the hammer to smash in the glass door.


    In the 911 call, Paul Pelosi appeared to subtly attempt to communicate to law enforcement that he was in danger as DePape was allegedly near him in the house.

    "There's a gentleman here just waiting for my wife to come back, Nancy Pelosi," he said. "He's just waiting for her to come back, but she's not going to be here for days, so I guess we'll have to wait."

    "He thinks everything's good. I've got a problem, but he thinks everything's good," Pelosi added.


    The clip that garnered by far the most interest was the police body camera footage that was released which showed Paul Pelosi being attacked.

    The footage shows police knocking on the door of the home before either Pelosi or DePape opened it.

    "What's going on man?" an officer asks.

    "Everything is good," DePape responds as he wrestled for control of a hammer with Pelosi.

    "Drop the hammer!" the officer then says.

    "Umm, nope," DePape responded before gaining control of the hammer and striking Pelosi.

    "Oh, s-!" one of the officers says as police rushed in to stop DePape during the attack.

    Paul Pelosi was attacked on October 28 by a nudist activist who broke into the Pelosi residence seeking to kidnap the then-House speaker, prosecutors said in a pretrial hearing. The activist, who prosecutors identified as 42-year-old David DePape, attacked Paul Pelosi after not being able to locate his wife.

    DePape has pleaded not guilty on all charges, which include both state and federal charges. He is expected to appear in state court on February 23 to set a date for his trial. He is being held in jail without bail.

    Authorities said that San Francisco police entered the Pelosi residence around 2:30 a.m. local time on the night of the attack. An assailant and Pelosi struggled over a hammer, and then the assailant "violently" assaulted Pelosi, the police said.

    After the attack, Pelosi was taken to a hospital where he underwent "successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands," a spokesman for Nancy Pelosi said at the time.

    DePape broke into the house shouting "Where's Nancy?" a court affidavit said.

    DePape told first responders at the scene that he was sick of the "level of lies" from politicians in Washington, D.C., and "came here to have a little chat with [Paul Pelosi's] wife," according to a court filing.

    "I didn't really want to hurt him, but you know this was a suicide mission. I'm not going to stand here and do nothing even if it cost me my life," DePape said, according to the filing.

    DePape allegedly intended to attack other high profile figures as well. Police said DePape intended to target President Joe Biden's son Hunter, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and actor Tom Hanks.
