Steve Lodge and his shady past

Steve Lodge is said to be having a past which is filled with a number of scandals and controversies. He allegedly was involved in political manipulations, failed runs for the office, and other fights and assaults.

It is learned that Steve Lodge is a former US Army paratrooper and used to also serve as a police officer at the City of Santa Ana. He was accused on two occasions of assault and battery when he was working as a police officer. Though charges were present, they made no headway.

In the year 1991, John Ellis had accused Steve of assaulting him and the case was at the Municipal Court. The case is an old one and hence no documents could be retrieved and those probably are already destroyed. In 1997, there was a man called Araceli Orozco who had made a similar accusation on Steve. The case had started but one year later, he had requested for its dismissal.

In the year 2012, Steve had entered into a fight with a man called Michael Thomas who was allegedly caught sleeping with his then-wife. Steve in anger had punched the man on his face multiple times and this had led to a black eye, bad bruising, and other injuries to the man. Hence a restraining order was issued against Steve.

Steve is said to have retired in 2009 from the police force. He took up the job of a city government consultant. He was also running for the election for the Anaheim City Council in the years 2012 and 2016 and had lost on both the occasions. Similarly, he also had a lawsuit against him at that time for an illegal name change and use in the ballot papers.

Reality TV Bliss wrote on the Twitter handle:

“Steve Lodge has a cop’s pension and retirement. He’s far from wealthy and we have never once seen his home. He’s basically living with and off of Vicki. It’s why she gives him chores. #HouseBitch #RHOC.”
