Whitefish, MT – The handsome Lurch impersonator to the left is Matthew Lamb, 26. He was wanted on a $50,000 warrant out of Cascade County for a strong-arm robbery and was taken into police custody on April 10th after a bizarre (and hilarious) display.
When police initially spotted Lamb, he was with Sidney Aimsback, 24. Lamb is no stranger to the local precinct, having racked up arrests for drugs, assault, and robbery dating back to his high school days. Aimsback also had an outstanding warrant for robbery to his credit. Upon spotting officers, the two reportedly jumped into a car near Grouse Mountain Lodge and took off. A chase ensued, but the suspects’ vehicle was cut-off by a cruiser and stopped.
Aimsback complied with orders and exited the car at gunpoint without incident. However, when the arresting officers ordered Lamb to the ground, he resisted in a truly awesome way that I can only assume was a display of a profound respect for authority. He reportedly got out of the car, removed all his clothing, mooned the officers, turned around, grabbed his genitals, and waved them in their general direction, all while screaming “go ahead and shoot me.”
They shot him, alright…with a taser gun. He was then cuffed and successfully taken into custody. And now I’ve got the song “Shock the Monkey” playing non-stop in my head.
Lamb and Aimsback were wanted for a robbery in which they took belongings from another man’s home and car. Officers recovered a safe that had been cracked, some rolled coins, and some cash, along with the vehicle. Both men face felony charges of robbery and misdemeanor charges of obstructing justice and resisting arrest. Lamb has not been charged with having a horrendous haircut, so I’m expecting a violent outcry from the gay community within the next day or so.Tags: Matthew Lamb, Montana, obstruction of justice, Resisting Arrest, Robbery, Sidney Aimsback
