Up until now, no details were revealed on how the arrest of Lambesis went down. Here is what happened according to an employee of the Barnes & Noble store (were Lambesis was arrested):
"It was about 2 p.m. My buddy was outside the store doing face-painting and the cops told him that he needed to stop immediately and go inside. Tim was there with a friend just browsing. I saw one special task-force cop, two regular officers, and two undercover officers. They just pushed everyone aside and handcuffed him. It all happened so fast. It seemed like they were planning it out for a long time."
During last weeks hearing, Lambesis' attorney claimed that his client began using steroids, which clouded his judgement. He also said that Lambesis had gotten into body building and eating healthy, and later began taking nutritional supplements as a paid product spokesman. At some point, he also began taking steroids.
According to Warwick, "his thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use".
It was also revealed by the prosecution that the cost of alleged hit on Lambesis' wife was priced at $20,000 and that Lambesis was "very willing to pay that".
As previously reported, Lambesis's band AS I LAY DYING have been forced to pull out from the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. Here is a statement from the band!
