The 82-year-old businessman was booked into jail on two misdemeanor counts, driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, TMZ reported. Pelosi’s bail was set for $5,000, according to records obtained by multiple news outlets. 

Through his various business ventures, Pelosi has accumulated a net worth of $120 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Born on April 15, 1940, in San Francisco, California, he earned his bachelor of science degree in foreign service at Georgetown University and his MBA from the Stern School of Business at New York University.

He has been married to wife Nancy, 82, since 1963. Together, they have five children: Nancy Corinne, Christine, Jacqueline, Paul and Alexandra. 

The businessman is the founder of the San Francisco-based real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm Financial Leasing Services. Through the company, he and his wife have amassed a personal fortune of more than $100 million.

Pelosi also has shares in a number of major companies, including Apple, Facebook, Walt Disney, Comcast, Microsoft, Nvidia, Amazon and the real estate group Russell Ranch.

His biggest investment reportedly came in June 2021, when he purchased around $4.8 million worth of shares in Google’s parent company Alphabet.

In addition, Pelosi invested in the Oakland Invaders of the United States Football League and purchased a franchise in the United Football League, the California Redwoods, in 2009 for $12 million. The Redwoods later became the Sacramento Mountain Lions.

Pelosi and his wife estimated their personal net worth to be somewhere between $43 million and $202 million depending on the value of real estate assets, stock investments and other private assets, according to the House speaker's most recent wealth disclosure.

Pelosi and his wife reportedly own a real estate portfolio worth over $25 million. 

The couple has homes in San Francisco and Napa in California. They also have a townhome in Norden, California, and own two commercial buildings in San Francisco.
