25-year-old Jared Lamb was involved in a scuffle on Broadway with Leslie Paul Todd in the early hours of Monday. Officers were at an unrelated traffic stop when they overheard the altercation, began walking towards Lamb, and observed him punch Todd in the face, knocking him out. They tried to separate the parties and advised Lamb to wait while they situated everything, but when they turned around, they saw him running away. The officer began to chase after Lamb when Mason Cole Green, Lamb’s co-defendant, intentionally tripped him, causing bodily injury and damaging his pants. Lamb continued running on 4th Avenue and eventually ran up the stairs to the AT&T building, where a security guard advised officers that Lamb was hiding behind a trashcan. Lamb was taken into custody for assault and two counts of evading.
