A trooper from Yakima, Washington has submitted his letter of resignation after an investigation that focused on his lies, sex, and misconduct on the job. Investigators say that Travis Lamb had sex with a woman just three hours after he booked her into jail for a DUI.
The investigation determined that Lamb had not broken any laws, but had violated the official misconduct statue. The woman he had arrested earlier that day, told investigators that he showed up in his patrol car and in his uniform. Lamb was not on duty at the time, but he was on call.
Lamb said the woman acted out of jealousy after he told her he wasn’t interested in pursuing a relationship with her. The investigators decided the woman’s story was more credible, because Lamb resigned, but no charges were ever filed. Lamb admitted that resigning from his ‘dream job’ was the hardest thing he had ever done.
It is believed that this investigation had no impact on the woman’s Washington DUI case.
