California prosecutors say the estranged wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer has been charged with drug possession and child abuse after police found her with methamphetamine at a relative's house in Orange County, where she was staying with her 9-year-old son.
The charges against Nadia Lockyer are the latest in a series of substance and relationship struggles faced by the former Alameda County supervisor.
A district attorney spokeswoman said police in Orange received a tip last week leading them to the house. Lockyer wasn't home, but police found methamphetamine and smoking paraphernalia.
She was arrested the same day when police found her and she appeared to have been using meth.
Lockyer pleaded not guilty in August to three drug-related charges and one child abuse charge.
