Video of the incident shows Pelosi, wearing a button-down shirt and boxers, opening the door for police alongside alleged attacker David DePape.

“Everything is good,” DePape told cops when they asked what was going on.


Both DePage and Pelosi are seen with their hands on the hammer when police instruct DePage to drop it.

That’s when DePage said “nope” and launched at Pelosi, hitting him on the head with the hammer.

Pelosi then fell to the ground, unconscious, as police tackled DePage, subdued, and handcuffed him.

A pool of what appears to be blood is seen around Pelosi’s body after the attack.

The San Francisco County Superior Court ruled the footage should be made public after a judge denied a request by prosecutors to keep it secret.

The 911 call made by Pelosi before he was physically attacked was also released on Friday.

During the three-minute frantic call, Pelosi is heard trying to portray the danger he is in while DePage is heard in the background interjecting.

“There’s a gentleman here just waiting for my wife to come back, Nancy Pelosi,” Pelosi told the dispatcher.

He added: “He thinks everything’s good. I’ve got a problem, but he thinks everything’s good.”

Pelosi added he was with a “friend,” but didn’t know who he was. He then told the operator he has to go because his friend really wanted him to get off the phone.

Pelosi suffered a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands, according to Nancy Pelosi’s office.

DePape, 43, was hospitalized after the attack – although details about his injuries have not been made public.

He was charged with attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, and burglary.

DePape was reportedly known in Berkeley, California, as a pro-nudity activist who had protested in the nude to demand naked rights.
