Suspect in Paul Pelosi attack, David DePape, charged with attempted murder and assault

San Francisco PD chief: ‘Intuition’ of 911 dispatcher who took Pelosi call led to ‘higher priority’ response

San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said a “higher priority dispatch” was sent to the residence of Paul Pelosi because of the 911 operator’s “intuition” that there was “something more to the incident than what she was being told.”

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was attacked at their San Francisco residence early Friday morning after 2 a.m.

Scott said during a Friday night press conference that both Paul Pelosi and DePape both had their hands on the hammer. When officers gave an order for the men to drop the hammer, DePape began attacking Paul Pelosi, who was hit at least one time.

The police chief said a “higher priority dispatch” was given to Pelosi’s residence because of the 911 operator.

“I want to re-emphasize and thank our dispatcher, Heather Grimes. Grimes for her intuition, her quick thinking. She had to interpret what she was being told and based on her experience and her intuition. She basically figured out that there was something more to this incident than what she was being told. Her actions, in my opinion, resulted in both a higher priority dispatch and a faster police response,” Scott said. 

Scott said that her actions were “life-saving.”
