A spousal battery case against Nadia Locker, a former Alameda County supervisor and wife of a former California state attorney general, remains under review by the Tuolumne County District Attorney’s Office.
A tentative arraignment date of 8:30 a.m. Wednesday in Department 4 was not met pending an official submission of charges by the DA’s Office, which can take up to a year.
Lockyer was arrested Thursday at a Twain Harte Lake vacation home on Fireside Drive on suspicion of spousal battery after the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department received a report of an intoxicated woman was yelling and throwing things.
Her husband, Bill Lockyer, who is also a former California State Treasurer, received a minor injury during the incident.
Nadia Lockyer, who posted $5,000 bail the evening of the incident, had a blood alcohol content of 0.22 percent at the time of her arrest, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andrea Benson said.
Nadia Lockyer was arrested on suspicion of 243(e)(1), or battery on a spouse, a misdemeanor. If convicted of the charge, she faces maximum charges of up to one year in prison, a $2,000 fine and three years of probation.
The Tuolumne County District Attorney’s Office was awaiting the submission of an incident report from the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office as of Friday. Officials at the DA’s Office could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.
