Los Angeles Times - - Latextra - — Raja Ab­dul­rahim

The Orange County district at­tor­ney is re­view­ing a case in­volv­ing a fam­ily dis­tur­bance be­tween Assem­bly­man Chris Norby and his wife to de­ter­mine whether crim­i­nal charges should be filed.

The case stems from a Sept. 2 in­ci­dent in which Fuller­ton po­lice were called to the cou­ple’s home by a de­liv­ery­man who re­ported over­hear­ing Norby and his fourth wife, Martha, ar­gu­ing, said Po­lice Sgt. An­drew Goodrich.

Martha Norby said her hus­band had pushed her, Goodrich said.

“I didn’t push any­body, she didn’t push any­body, it was purely ver­bal,” the assem­bly­man said Wed­nes­day.

The cou­ple, who have been mar­ried a year and a half and are ex­pect­ing their first child in May, were ar­gu­ing over who would pick up her three older chil­dren from school, said Norby, 60. He de­scribed it as an “an­i­mated dis­cus­sion.”

Norby, a long­time Orange County su­per­vi­sor, was elected to the Assem­bly in Jan­uary af­ter Assem­bly­man Mike Du­vall re­signed af­ter a he was heard brag­ging about his al­leged sex­ual ex­ploits with a fe­male lob­by­ist. Du­vall ap­par­ently was un­aware his mi­cro­phone was on.
