Former Huskies football coach Lambright arrested

SEATTLE (AP) Former Washington football coach Jim Lambright was arrested last week for investigation of domestic violence, according to Snohomish County court documents released Wednesday.

The 72-year-old was arrested June 18 for allegedly assaulting his 23-year-old granddaughter at his Snohomish home.

The Snohomish County prosecutor's office said Wednesday that Lambright has not been charged.

His granddaughter told sheriff's deputies that Lambright grabbed her by the arms, pulling her to the floor, according to a probable-cause statement. She said he tried to drag her out of the house by her ankle and that Lambright dragged her about 5 feet before she broke free and called 911.

Lambright told authorities that he grabbed her by the arms to get her out of the house but did not hurt her. He said he was sick of his granddaughters' attitude, according to court documents. A message left at his number Wednesday afternoon was not immediately returned.

Lambright's wife, Lynne, who witnessed the incident, told authorities Lambright suffered from dementia and that his condition was deteriorating.

Lambright was head coach of the Huskies for six seasons, starting with the 1992 season. He led Washington to a 44-25-1 record during his tenure. Before becoming head coach, he was an assistant coach for the Huskies for 24 years.
