Lockyer’s Wife Entering Rehab After Alleged Newark Assault

OAKLAND (KCBS/AP) – An Alameda County supervisor who is married to California’s treasurer is undergoing treatment for substance abuse problems after being assaulted in a motel room.

Nadia Lockyer announced Tuesday that she enrolled in a recovery center to treat her “chemical dependency” and injuries from the Feb. 3 assault.

The 40-year-old Lockyer told police that she met an ex-boyfriend at a Newark motel, where she was staying after having an argument with her husband. She didn’t discuss details of the motel incident in Tuesday’s statement.

Prosecutors are deciding whether to charge the ex-boyfriend.

Lockyer has been married since 2003 to Democrat Bill Lockyer, one of California’s longest-serving elected officials.

Bill Lockyer’s spokesman, Tom Dresslar that the treasurer declined comment and is concerned only with protecting his wife and their 8-year-old son.

KCBS and Chronicle Insider Phil Matier said that she plans on staying on the job and continuing her work.

“She said that she’s continuing to serve for Alameda County. But this is not a very pretty picture no matter how you look at it,” said Matier. “She is an elected official but trying to sort this out isn’t going to be very easy.”

KCBS and Chronicle Insider Phil Matier:

You can hear Phil Matier’s comments Monday through Friday at 7:50am and 5:50pm on KCBS All News 740AM and 106.9FM.

      She’s bloated too, but in the right places. Yeah, right- youI know you thought it.

  • Darwin

    The husband is 70, she’s 40, yeah nothing whatsoever wrong there. It is obviously a marriage for love. She’s trying to be a politician and has her husband’s pull going for her. How long before she runs for state office? Sounds like she wasn’t giving her husband any pull though. She meets former boyfriend for some meth followed by dirty sex then he flips out. Just another wonderful public official. Both she and Hayashi need to resign!!!
