Melugin's source described DePape as a “longtime” visa overstay.
San Francisco police arrived at the Pelosi residence early Friday morning and found DePape and the 82-year-old Pelosi struggling over a hammer.
According to the report, DePape got the hammer away from Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it. Both men were admitted to the hospital for treatment.
