“I’m a cop, you idiot”  - Red

According to Lambgoat, Tim Lambesis has been sentenced to six years in jail. His wife’s testimony is tragic, though the Total Recall part is fucking hysterical if you have a morbid sense of humor.

In a report from, here is what took place when Meggan Lambesis spoke:

When Meggan finally spoke, Lambesis turned in his seat to listen but didn’t look into her face. The wife and mother of three adopted children, Meggan said Lambesis’ behavior changed in the prior months. He had bullied her. He had become “dangerous.” Reading a prepared statement, she claimed her life “felt as fragile as a piece of paper that could float away at any moment.”Meggan explained to the court that Lambesis texted her the day before his arrest asking for his children’s social security numbers: “He was tying up loose ends,” she said. She now believes he was fantasizing about killing her in advance, quoting a favorite line from the Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film Total Recall where he shoots his wife and says, “Consider that a divorce.” Meggan closed by requesting the maximum sentence and a lifetime restraining order.


While I am not condoning his actions, I do believe steroids and hormone imbalance can really fuck you up. Tim has done a lot of good things for the scene and the whole shit is really sad. I feel bad for his kids, his estranged wife and yes, also for Tim. I know there are a lot of clowns out there and shit, I made jokes here myself, but this also sucks for anyone who took inspiration from Tim’s lyrics over the years. I know it is cute to be snarky and dismissive on message boards, but As I Lay Dying were great before this all went down. Tim broke his interview silence with Alternative Press HERE as well and it is a must read. Read the full main Lambgoat piece on the sentencing HERE.
