Norby Arrested for Domestic Violence and Child Endangerment

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on March 12, 2014

Chris-Norby[1]There’s not much else to say beyond the headline, as Chris Norby was arrested tonight for domestic violence and child endangerment.  Norby served in the State Assembly from 2010-2012, on the Board of Supervisors from 2003-2010, and on the Fullerton City Council from 1984-2002.

Here’s an excerpt from the Orange County Register’s story on the arrest:

FULLERTON – Former state Assemblyman Chris Norby, 64, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of domestic violence and child endangerment, Fullerton police confirmed.

Norby, a former Fullerton councilman, mayor and county supervisor, was booked into the Fullerton city jail, Fullerton police Sgt. Jeff Stuart said.

Police late Wednesday night were not able to provide any additional details regarding the allegations that led to Norby’s arrest. He was released on a $10,000 bond, Stuart said.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this story in the coming days and weeks as more information comes out.

3/13 Update: The Orange County Register added a new paragraph to their story this morning:

In a phone interview late Wednesday, Norby said his arrest was the result of “false accusations” made by his wife. He declined to go into specifics, but described himself as a victim.
