Patterson Accuser Now in La Paz County Jail

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2012 at 5:40 PM

In this week’s Skinny, Georgette Escobar, who has accused state Rep. Daniel Patterson of abusing her during a messy breakup in recent weeks, said that Tucson had seen the last of her because she was going into hiding.

Escobar said she had to vanish because Patterson had revealed that she was living in Tucson under a new name following legal troubles she had while in a different abusive relationship in California.

Well, it appears we haven’t yet heard the last of Escobar. Herreras reports that Escobar is now in La Paz County Jail following an arrest on drug charges.

We don’t have all the details yet, but La Paz County officials confirm that Escobar is in custody. Her bail has been set at $5,000 and she’s facing a March 16 court hearing on charges related to “dangerous drugs.”

“It’s not marijuana,” said our La Paz Sheriff’s Department source.

More to come.
