The man who answered the door promised that his female roommate, who he said had left, would soon return, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. That's when Lamey offered the 23-year-old a drink laced with Ambien, a sleeping pill, and waited until it kicked in before sexually attacking him, the affidavit said.
Lamey was charged Wednesday with sexual assault, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. He was being held in the Travis County Jail on Thursday in lieu of $20,000 bail. ...
The online advertisement the man responded to was for "partying and hanging out with other men and women," according to affidavit. The man e-mailed the address provided in the ad and arranged a meeting, the affidavit said.
Lamey showed the man a picture of a woman he said was his roommate before offering the drink, the affidavit said.
He "took a few drinks and started feeling very sleepy," the document said.
