Former supervisor Gayle Bishop in trouble again

Former Contra Costa County Supervisor Gayle Bishop was arrested Saturday in Danville on charges of domestic violence, said Danville Sgt. Troy Craig.

Danville police arrested Bishop, 68, at a home on St. Luke Court after receiving a call about a domestic dispute around 4:14 p.m. March 3.

She was taken to Martinez Detention Facility and her bail was set at $50,000. She posted bail the next morning, and she is scheduled to appear at court on a later date, Craig said.

Bishop was a Contra Costa County supervisor for District 3, which includes Danville and Alamo, from 1993-97. She was convicted in 1997 for misuse of public funds and perjury for using county staff in her unsuccessful election campaign. She served three weeks in jail for those crimes.
