The revelation was made in Vista, Calif. Superior Court late last week, where Lambesis’ lawyer, Thomas Warwick, asked for the singer’s bail to be reduced from $3 million to $250,000, claiming he was unable to pay the full amount. Judge David Berry agreed on $2 million.
According to local newspaper U-T San Diego, Warwick also testified that Lambesis had become so into bodybuilding that he’d moved from taking nutritional supplements as a paid spokesman to full-blown steroid consumption, claiming that the singer’s “thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use.”
Lambesis “was not the same person,” Warwick added. “He was irritable and lost God.”
A forensic psychiatrist for the defense also testified that Lambesis was suffering from “roid rage.”
