A former county supervisor and the estranged wife of California's Treasurer has been arrested after police found methamphetamine stashed in the Orange County home she was living in with the couple's nine-year-old son.
Mr Bill Lockyer, the state's former attorney general and current treasurer, helped his much younger wife with $1.6million in campaign funding when she won her supervisor seat in 2010, but has since filed for divorce and is seeking joint custody of their son.
Police received a tip last week that led them to a house where Mrs Lockyer was staying with relatives, district attorney's spokeswoman Farrah Emami said.
The woman was not home, but officers found methamphetamine and paraphernalia used for smoking it. Later, when they found Mrs Lockyer, she showed 'objective signs' of meth intoxication and was arrested.
Mrs Lockyer pleaded not guilty in court on August 30 to a felony count of drug possession, two misdemeanor drug charges and one misdemeanor count of child abuse.
Mrs Lockyer had made various accusations in the past of abandonment by her husband and that the divorce had been coming for some time.
An email that appeared to be sent from Mrs Lockyer went to a newspaper, accusing her husband of supplying her with drugs, a claim he denies.
'I simply can't bear this any longer. Goodbye to everyone,' the note read, prompting the paper to call police, fearing for her safety.
A technology expert found the email was sent from Mrs Lockyer's phone.
When the the couple wed in 2003, Mrs Lockyer she was four years younger than Mr Lockyer's daughter from a previous marriage. However, they immediately became a political power couple.
She was the daughter of a well-known Los Angeles-area lawyer and she had made a name for herself working on political campaigns in Orange County.

Why do we always have to get this stuff from across the pond?
She is a strange wife. Very strange.
Perfect. I’m sure none of this was going on when Bill Lockyear (D) was the AG of the state. :/
Her mug shot looks alarming.
We all know though, this is only going to enhance her resume.
The wife of the former Democrat Attorney General says he was getting her drugs? My, my....real surprise there.
Because it involes RATs in a negative light. Our MSM will never allow that.
Just like Bill Clinton.
