The trauma of being assaulted by an ex-boyfriend in a motel room earlier this month has led the wife of California's State Treasurer to undergo treatment at a rehab for "chemical dependency," as well as for injuries stemming from the beating and chronic pain from a 2002 car accident. Nadia Lockyer, who is an Alameda County Supervisor, married current California treasurer and former state attorney general Bill Lockyer in 2003. "Alcoholism and addiction are diseases from which many of us suffer, and unfortunately, I have not been spared," she said in a statement. "With the strong encouragement of the people in my life who love me, including my husband, my family, and my friends, I decided to get help and treatment so that I may fully heal and recover." Nadia Lockyer told police she met her ex at a motel in Newark, California on February 3, after an argument with her husband. She didn't go into details about events inside the motel room. Bill Lockyer said his wife had portrayed the ex-boyfriend as a troubled person whom she believed was having a crisis. He added that the ex "seems to have a long history of involvement with the criminal justice system, but her [Nadia's] only fault is occasionally having one too many drinks." The Lockyers have now reunited after a brief separation.
