An individual posed as a federal agent in attempting to gain access to the man accused of assaulting Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul, San Francisco law enforcement said on Thursday.
A person "pretended to be a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in order to access Paul Pelosi attacker David DePape in jail," the San Francisco Sheriff's Department told San Francisco local news station KRON4.
The unnamed individual "arrived at the jail with a business card but no government credentials," the news network said.
It is unclear what happened to the individual alleged to have impersonated an I.C.E. official. The sheriff's office did not respond to the New York Post's request for comment on the matter.
DePape has been indicted on federal charges related to the attack on Pelosi late last month. Federal officials have said he is a Canadian national in the United States illegally.
