He has subsequently been charged with additional offenses, according to jail and sheriff’s reports.

The Jan. 13 charges stem from what started as a report of a disturbance in which shots were allegedly fired from a weapon on County Road 4711 around 5:15 p.m. Jan. 13. Upon arrival, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies were told the suspects had fled, one on foot and one in a Ford pickup. Deputy Drew Fisher detained 43-year-old Chun Zachary Lambert of The Colony on State Highway 11 at CR 4711 and found the second suspect, 38-year-old Nader Tokleh of Flower Mound, just down CR 4711, and detained him as well.

Deputies were told both men traveled together in the truck to the CR 4711 residence to pick up another vehicle and a disturbance occurred. During the disturbance, the driver of the truck allegedly brandished, pointed and later fired a firearm. Both men allegedly fled the scene.

Lambert reportedly agreed to let deputies search the truck he was in. Deputies reported finding 5.938 grams of suspected methamphetamine in the vehicle both men had arrived on CR 4711 in earlier. Neither admitted to possessing the substance, so both men were charged with possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, deputies alleged in arrest reports.

The 43-year-old The Colony man was also accused of driving the pickup through a metal pipe gate, causing property damage, deputies noted in arrest reports. Deputies observed a pistol holder in the driveway near the gate; they believe the firearm was thrown from the vehicle as Lambert departed from it, Fisher and Sgt. Tanner Steward alleged in Jan. 13 arrest reports.

When asked for ID, Lambert reportedly told deputies his wallet was in his back pocket. Deputies later learned he was in possession of someone else’s wallet which contained 13 items of identifying information.

Consequently, Lambert was booked into Hopkins County jail Jan. 13 on two of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges, on fraudulent use or possession of identifying information charge, one possession of 4 grams or more but less than 200 grams of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance charge and failure to identify as a fugitive for justice, as well as violation of parole and a warrant for theft of property valued at $2,500 or more but less than $30,000 charge. Bond on those charges totaled $102,000, according to arrest and jail reports.

Deputy Jason Lavender served Lambert at 11:15 a.m. Jan. 27 with an additional warrant for theft of a firearm, related to original Jan. 13 incident, according to arrest reports. Additional charges he has been accused of include unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and tampering with evidence; bond on those charges was set at $20,000 each, according to jail reports.
