A brother-in-law of Gov. Gavin Newsom was arrested on domestic violence allegations in Ross, police said.

Joshua Irwin Schiller, 40, was booked into the Marin County Jail and released pending further review by the district attorney’s office.

Ross police went to Schiller’s home at about 11 p.m. Wednesday to investigate a disturbance. “The victim had visible injuries that were minor in nature and did not require immediate medical treatment,” the police department said in a brief statement.

The arrest attracted interest in the business and legal media because of Schiller’s connections. His wife is a sister of Newsom’s wife, and he is a partner in the nationally known law firm of Boies Schiller Flexner, Bloomberg Law reported. His father is firm co-founder Jonathan Schiller, according to Bloomberg.

Schiller’s lawyer, Douglas Horngrad, said he expects the case to be dropped.
