According to authorities, Lamb and his girlfriend were involved in a heated argument. As she attempted to exit the vehicle, Lamb allegedly accelerated while she was still partially inside, putting her at significant risk of serious injury.

Lamb was detained and taken to the Wayne County Jail for arraignment later that day. A protective order was requested on behalf of the victim to ensure her safety following the incident.
