The former Alameda County supervisor has been arrested on methamphetamine possession charges in Orange County, authorities announced today. The district attorney’s office said the estranged wife of state treasurer Bill Lockyer was arrested Aug. 28 at a relative’s home in the city of Orange where she was staying with the couple’s 9-year-old son. She pleaded not guilty in Orange County Superior Court last Friday.

Press reports say that officers found meth and drug paraphernalia, including tubular aluminum foil with a burned end. The criminal complaint against her says that she showed “objective signs of being under the influence of a drug.”

Besides being charged with possession of methamphetamine, a felony, Lockyer, who resigned in April after a drug and sex scandal, was charged with three misdemeanors: being under the influence of meth, possession of controlled substance paraphernalia and child endangerment.
