Officials did not release details about the accusations against Lampley, but the Web site TMZ.com reported that Lampley was arrested at the home of his girlfriend. Sources told TMZ.com that Lampley had been under investigation because of previous complaints.
It was not known whether Lampley had retained an attorney.

An after-hours call to a HBO spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
