Anderson said McClellan, who arrived at the CCSO just before 9 a.m., is now being held in the Covington County Jail on an outstanding violation of probation warrant.

As for the “cutting incident,” that remains under investigation, Anderson said.

“Right now, investigators are still interviewing potential witnesses,” Anderson said.

Immediately following the incident, Lambert was air lifted from the Gantt Lake boat ramp to Baptist South Hospital in Montgomery for treatment. As of Wednesday afternoon, Lambert remained in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
