TMZ has unearthed more details regarding Jim Lampley's arrest, and the allegations brought forth by Lampley's fiancee, Candice Sanders -- a former Miss USA California (shown above).

Sanders claimed that Lampley became drunk on vodka and whiskey after a New Year's Eve dinner at their shared apartment, and "was also high on pot". Lampley's 14-year-old son Aaron was also in attendance.

Trouble began after Sanders wished to finish viewing a movie, causing Lampley to pull her from the sofa and chase her around the apartment.

Sanders says at that point all hell broke loose. She alleges, "He grabbed me and threw me against a wall. He then threw me against another wall. He then threw me against the door and I collapsed."

Just a hunch, but we're guessing they weren't watching Ocean's Eleven.

Update #2: Lampley made a statement today:

"I am innocent of the charge of domestic abuse that has been leveled against me and will vigorously defend myself," Lampley said. "I have tremendous respect for the justice system as a whole and for the San Diego courts and District Attorney's office specifically.

"I'm confident that the process will prove that I'm not guilty of this charge. I thank my friends and family for their support during this difficult time, and ask for the understanding and patience from the media until my legal situation allows me to discuss this in more depth."

Sanders was also in court on Thursday to request a permanent restraining order against Lampley, and the judge granted that request.

Update #3: Candice Sanders had her previous marriage to a Jehovah's Witness named Marlon Muller annulled, because Muller refused to have "marital sexual relations" with her. Apparently Muller's decision hinged on his religious beliefs. You can read more about it here.

P.S. Here's some better photos of Sanders -- credit to West Side Slant for unearthing these.

  1. Did you notice how everyone must obviously be thinking of Bree Walker but is terrified to mention her name? How long are we gonna tap dance around that red lobster...I mean, pink elephant?


  2. Lampley's such a turd. This is the same guy who blogs on the Huffington Post and claims George Bush is the devil.

    Seriously lunkhead (damn, that's a great name ... for you!), the devil is a cuddly little bunny compared to George Bush. Lampley is right on about Bush, and 80% of Americans agree.
