He says Lambert-Smith held him at gunpoint for several hours until he rushed at her around 2:00 a.m. The report says he was shot in the chest.

The two struggled and he was able to grab the gun.

That’s when investigators say Lambert-Smith drove off.

The victim was flown to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. He was later released.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office arrest warrants also include a charge of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime against Lambert-Smith in addition to attempted murder and kidnapping.
