Pregnant Woman Killed While Trying To Run Cop OverWoodruff, SC – Lacey Denise Lamb, 28 years old and 21-weeks pregnant, was shot dead by a police officer while she was reportedly attempting to run him over with a car.

Officer William T. Knight pulled the vehicle over at about 1:40 PM yesterday on Jamie’s Creek Drive.  The reason for the traffic stop is unclear, but once the car was stopped, the driver, 33-year-old Matthew Drake Simmons, reportedly exited and began running.

Officer Knight gave chase, at which point Lamb, the only passenger, allegedly got behind the wheel and put the car into motion in an attempt to run the officer down, presumably in an effort to allow Simmons to escape.

Knight drew his weapon and fired, lethally wounding her.  Lamb was airlifted to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, but neither she nor her unborn child survived.

Simmons was arrested and charged with driving under suspension, third or subsequent offense, according to online jail records.  He is currently awaiting a bond hearing.  It’s unclear at this point if he is the father of the deceased fetus.

The case is still under investigation.  Lamb did have a criminal record, but I’m too much of a mongoloid to figure out what the charges were.

    I know it may feel that way but is it possible to be 21 months pregnant?

  • http://www.facebook.com/amandamart Amanda Ratcliff Martin

    How in the hell is she 21 MONTHS pregnant??

  • Sam

    If is entirely inappropriate to be THAT on the ball on a Friday afternoon… ;) I completely missed that! :)

  • Sam

    It reads like a blooming fairy tale. The Knight tried to conquer the Drake, got almost run down by an armoured steed, and slaughtered a Lamb instead.

    I know, i know, i need more liquor.

    My first reaction is to not put ALL of the blame on this woman. The male passenger (possible baby daddy) initiated her fight or flight reflexes when he booked out of the car. She was preggers so her protective instincts are at an all-time high for her. She reacted poorly, but was influenced by her raging hormones. Her maternal instincts had her make a decision like that of a mother lion. She wanted desperately to protect her “family”. Combine young, stupid, and extremely emotional and you’ve got a recipe for disaster kick started by an impulsive male looking to escape a possible DUI. Not worth it at all.

  • Rachel Ann

    Anyone pregnant for 21-months has to be a servant of Beelzebub! *Tosses holy water around*

  • Gee

    I am late to the party so I don’t look like a cunt for a change.
    Yay me! Far better retribution to wait and change the typo so every one else looks like a dumb ass LMAO

  • newstarshipsmell

    Hmmmm, I wonder, can he be charged with her murder, since he was engaged in a crime when she died? I’m foggy on how that works/under what circumstances.

  • CT

    Ohhhh baby.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    I was wondering the same actually. At least charge him as an accessory. Although, it was ultimately her decision, the passenger sparked the chain of events… Which could leave legal loopholes for prosecutors to use against more “innocent” bystanders to crimes. Which leaves me feeling conflicted.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Quit being a little suck-up. :P

  • LuvsHorror

    I feel sorry for the cop who has to live with this for the rest of his life. How sad for him and the innocent baby.

  • LuvsHorror

    Haha, this is too funny! I missed the typo, tho.

  • Gee

    Don’t be jealous I would lick your ass too or is that two, or To :0)~ All day baby

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    Indeed. The cop couldn’t have known she was preggers. I’m sure it will haunt him.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I was a young mother of 2, and I can tell you that it never would have crossed my mind to put my child (born or unborn) in harms way to “save” their father. That has nothing to do with the fact that he was a sociopath or anything, and everything to do with the fact that I’m a mother first. If your take on what happened is the correct one, in this case with this young woman, then it was an epic fail on her part and just one more example of a mother putting her child in harms way to try and keep a penis.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Get that shit away from me! It burns!!!!

  • SwampDaughter

    I almost feel sad for her.. or maybe I just feel sorry for the baby. It’s pretty damn stupid to try and run down a police officer. What was her plan, that she would run over the cop and her boyfriend would just get away scot-free?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    I don’t pretend to understand someone else’s reasoning as it wouldn’t occur for me to do the same. However, she might have really really liked that penis.

  • http://tothechest.com Pete Puma

    Oooo, that would be something excellent to share with my 70 whole FB “fans.”

  • Andyman

    Nah, he used the “c” word and called all of you (I just got here) cunts… lmao.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I am sorry the child died, but I can only imagine the life that stood before it had it not died.

  • newstarshipsmell

    He called us both.

  • daMonBrooks

    LOL. And I was #70 or 71, I forget which.

    But I wouldn’t place much stock in that number. My friend’s flash game from last year has been played nearly two million times, consistently garnering 5-star reviews and constant demands for a sequel. My fanpage for her game? A whopping 69 likes.

  • JGo555

    I wish the baby had lived. That is all.

  • CT

    Well the funny is – I had to really think about it because I did feel like I was pregnant FOREVER and I only made it 8 out of the 9 months.

  • curiousalways

    Do you have twins? I know someone on hear does and it seems like it may be you.

  • CT

    Yup, A & J. They will be 5 in a few months.

  • curiousalways

    Wow. Better you than I. Mine are 8 and 11. Can’t imagine having them both at the same time!

    mongoloid? really? :/ i love this website, but poking fun at people with down syndrome is kind of shitty.

  • Rachel Ann

    Yet another deserving candidate for a Darwin Award who can’t get one. Fuck!

  • daMonBrooks

    I had nothing to contribute. Though I like the sound of my digital voice.

  • Athena

    For quality control control purposes, is it more or less shitty than poking fun at gays? What about amputees? Women? Babies?

  • Athena

    …said nobody ever.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HamsterNinjaofDOOM Alecia Hendricks

    The only people that get offended by it don’t have Downs so meh.

  • Athena

    I wouldn’t go quite that far. Plenty of Down’s sufferers are quite aware. :P

  • newstarshipsmell

    During my sophomore year in high school, this one retard walked up to me in the hallway one day, poked me in the chest, and with a huge grin on his face said “I remember you! You used to make fun of me and call me ‘Tard!’”

    He didn’t seem particularly offended.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jamie-Arnett/650941889 Jamie Arnett

    that isnt true at all. there are plenty of people with down syndrome who are very much self aware.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jamie-Arnett/650941889 Jamie Arnett

    what about gay amputees??

  • newstarshipsmell

    Just to clarify for others, since the term gets thrown around so much, this woman fails to qualify – for one, possibly two reasons:

    a) Her unborn child would almost certainly be considered an innocent bystander, although it’s a grey area which the official site doesn’t seem to specifically address:

    Killing others: The death of innocent bystanders absolutely rules out a Darwin Award. We don’t applaud those who take others out of the gene pool, even if they share some DNA in common. Injuring bystanders is also frowned upon.

    b) Her death probably does not meet the Excellence criterion, as cop shootings in self-defense are fairly common, and it was not wholly unreasonable for her to believe she could succeed in running down the cop first:

    The candidate must suffer an astounding lapse of judgment.

    It takes a phenomenal failure of common sense to earn a Darwin Award. Common idiocies like Russian Roulette, not wearing a lifejacket, sleeping with a smoldering cigarette: such are not sufficient to win this dubious distinction. OTOH playing Russian Roulette with land mines jumping on a whale carcass in a shark feeding frenzy or sneaking a cigarette while hanging off the back of a speeding bus…just might win you a Darwin Award.

    http://www.darwinawards.com/rules/

    She did, however, meet all four other criteria: Reproduction, Self-Selection, Maturity, and Veracity. Nice try, Lacey – maybe next lifetime.

  • Gee

    Point being made here is all of the above get equal time at being poked fun at. I will tell you which seems to have to be repeated many times this week.

    This web site is NOT for the SENSITIVE.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Man, you got me all excited and I searched the site for ‘gay amputee’, but all I got was “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.” Don’t tease me like that!

  • Athena

    LMAO.

  • Sam

    Sounds about right. My sister has downs – that’s just about the reaction she would have. My favourite- me walking into her bedroom on a particular Saturday morning saying, time to get up now, if you keep lying in in the morrning you’ll become neurotic. She walked into the living room ten minutes later saying, very indignantly, “I’m NOT erotic!!!”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jamie-Arnett/650941889 Jamie Arnett

    you are looking in the wrong places, obviously! :p

  • http://tothechest.com Pete Puma

    Oh shit…I meant “mongol.” I hate those motherfuckers. Yet another typo. I’m such a fucking retard.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Haha. I didn’t know what “erotic” meant and got it confused with “erratic,” until one day in 5th or 6th grade when I misused it several times while speaking in class. After half the class was quietly snickering, my teacher made a point of interrupting me, and dramatically explaining that I was confusing one word for another before defining them both for me. Ah, childhood memories…

    No idea who that kid thought I was. When he kept insisting that my name was “Steve” or “Mike” or something I gave up and stopped trying to convince him otherwise. He had those superthick lenses that magnified his eyeballs to like twice their size. Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys strongly reminds me of him. I was so uncomfortable and felt bad for him that I invited him to sit at our table during lunch a few days later (one of two social outcast tables along the far wall.) He ended up begging to sit with us the rest of the semester because the special ed students at his normal table “were all a bunch of drooling noisemakers.” His tardmaster seemed wary of us at first, but I guess probably realized that his one charge capable of conversing was probably better off sitting with other kids who could also converse.
