From The Daily Mail:
Nancy has not yet commented on his arrest.
She made no mention of it while giving a commencement speech to graduating students at Brown University in Rhode Island on Sunday.
The couple owns a vineyard in Napa, in addition to a home in nearby San Francisco, but she does not drink, according to previous statements given by her representatives.
The sprawling estate is one of many the couple owns.
The property on Zinfandel Lane sits on the banks of the Napa River and features a tennis court.
Neighboring vineyards have told in the past how the couple throws lavish parties for Silicon Valley executives.
