Don't mess with Rambo LambertMy favorite Knox County Commissioner was caught in an attempted robbery earlier today. Apparently, a young man came to Greg "Lumpy" Lambert's car dealership earlier today and pretended to be interested in a 2005 Ford Focus. The guy's real intent was to rob Lambert and/or the dealership.
At the time of the robbery, the suspect (his name was Kane Stackhouse) should have known better. Lumpy was wearing a "Friends of the NRA" cap at the time. Logic would dictate that you might not want to try to rob someone wearing a cap that endorses the NRA-that person might have a gun-Lumpy Lambert had his .380 and countered the robber by pointing the heat at him in return. The young man said he didn't want any trouble and fled the scene after that. Lumpy showed the man his .380 and the man repented.
Lumpy has been one of the leaders on the County Commission in the effort to investigate the Harbergate Affair. Lambert confirmed the story to The World.
