The Alameda County district attorney is now investigating reports that County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer was violently assaulted by an ex-boyfriend on February 3.

Nadia Lockyer is the wife of California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Lockyer and his wife recently separated, but had gotten back together before the incident. He says she went to a Newark motel to help her former boyfriend, who he described as a "troubled person" and was, instead, attacked by him. Nadia Lockyer was treated at a hospital and released.
