HBO’s Lamps arrested on Wednesday

HBO’s Jim Lampley was arrested near his girlfriend’s home on Wednesday and charged with suspicion of domestic violence, violating a restraining order and dissuading a witness, according to TMZ.com.

Lamps was released from Vista jail in San Diego after posting $35,000 bail.

Lampley is one of best sports broadcasters in the biz. He’s worked for the big three ABC, CBS and NBC and his long-running stint at HBO has made him a familiar, distinguished and welcome voice among boxing’s talking heads.

A pot bust many moons ago should have zero effect on the outcome of this latest brush with the law.

HBO was contacted by TSS and had no comment.
