ALAMEDA COUNTY | Former Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer was arrested last week in Orange County and charged with child endangerment, according to a police report.
Lockyer, 41, was arrested Aug. 28 and held in custody for three days at the county’s women’s jail, according to the report. She was released without bail.
The news of Lockyer’s arrest is another in a long list of personal troubles for the once-promising county supervisor following her election in 2010. Her rratic behavior and noticeable weight loss, however, became apparent in the first six months of her term and became public knowledge starting with her Feb. 3 call to Newark Police alleging her estranged boyfriend had assaulted her.
Lockyer later entered rehab for substance abuse addiction and ultimately resigned April 20. In June, Lockyer crashed her car into a pole near her Hayward home and was treated at a nearby hospital for minor injuries. A week later, published reports revealed her husband, Calfornia Treasurer Bill Lockyer had filed for divorce.
