LINDON, Utah, March 25, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A 29-year-old man is facing multiple charges after police had to subdue him with a Taser after he allegedly kicked an officer in the head while intoxicated.

Timothy Phillip Lambert was booked into Utah County Jail in the early hours of Saturday morning and is facing charges of intoxication, resisting arrest, assault against a police officer and disorderly conduct.

A statement of probable cause said officers were dispatched to Lindon around 1 a.m. Saturday and found Lambert, “stumbling into traffic and yelling at passing motorists.”

Police said Lambert was intoxicated and non-compliant. A breathalyzer test was administered and his BAC registered at .286. For a 130 pound man, which is Lambert’s weight according to jail records, that’s the equivalent of roughly 10 drinks.

Lambert was transported to Timpanogos Regional Hospital in Orem for further evaluation, and fought with officers while at the hospital.

The probable cause statement said that Lambert kicked an officer in the head who was attempting to restrain him. Another officer then deployed a Taser to Lambert’s torso, which had minimal effect. The Taser was then deployed to Lambert’s leg, at which time he became compliant.

After being checked out at the hospital Lambert was booked into jail.
