Man in police custody for suspended license dies of heart attack

March 21, 1998

A 56-year-old Stevensville man died of an apparent heart attack yesterday after he was arrested by a state trooper for driving with a suspended license near his home in Queen Anne's County, police said.

David A. Lambert of the 700 block of Mason Road was pulled over shortly before 11 a.m. for driving with an expired Tennessee registration and a suspended driver's license, state police said.

Trooper Michael A. Lesniowski was driving Lambert to a court commissioner when Lambert, who weighed more than 350 pounds, complained of chest pains. Lesniowski called for an ambulance, uncuffed Lambert and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Lambert was later pronounced dead at Anne Arundel General Medical Center in Annapolis.
