Temecula CHP Officer Named Athlete of Year by Bodybuilding Group

Mike Lassig was honored last week by the International Natural Bodybuilding Association.

CHP Officer Mike Lassig of Temecula has been named Athlete of the Year for the International Natural Bodybuilding Association.

Lassig, who has been bodybuilding for 20 years, earned the title last week at an international event in Reno, NV.

 “I find it amazing that even when Mike has to work graveyards and other odd schedules, he still eats clean and makes time to work out,” said CHP spokesman Nathan Baer in a press release.

“I’ve known Mike for over 10 years and he has always looked this fit; he has tremendous dedication.  People make jokes about cops and donuts, I can tell you this: Mike might know what a doughnut looks like, but I bet he can’t remember what one tastes like."

Lassig—listed as 5-foot-9 and 189 pounds—also took first in the Mr. Los Angeles Natural Body Building Championships + International Police, Fire, and Emergency Services in June.

He plans to compete again next year.

 The “natural” used in these bodybuilding events denotes that performance-enhancing drugs are banned.

Other bodybuilding groups—such as those in the days of Arnold Schwarzennegger’s career—permit anabolic steroids, insulin, diuretics and human growth hormone.

But was mike REALLY clean all his athletic career. Some of us went to high school with him and remember locker room and weight room spats. I'm glad he is clean now being the poster boy for the CHP and all that good stuff.

Any man that is fanatically obsessed with the male physique is questionable. I prefer women's bodies.

To the fake 'Teller', why so jealous of everyone else? If you spent as much time working on yourself as you do all of your nasty comments and stealing other peoples names, you'd be soooooo much better off. If you come out of the closet once & for all, you might feel a lot better about yourself too.
The Teller of Truth November 17, 2012 at 10:28 PM
You're one sick dude KevWild! Go get some help already.......
The Teller of Truth November 17, 2012 at 10:30 PM
Kev Wild (Fake Teller) why don't you take your homo erotic fantasies to some other forum? You're sick dude!
The Teller of Truth November 17, 2012 at 10:32 PM
KevWild, no one is interested in you. If this is the way you spend your time to get some attention, then you need to seek therapy...seriously dude. No one is amused.
LBV Collins November 17, 2012 at 11:33 PM
Hi TOT. I'm not KevWild. (Did he reply to my comment... and you're replying to him? Just curious. I don't see his comment.)
Constant Comment November 18, 2012 at 12:48 AM
@LBV, they pulled KevWilds fake "Teller" name & all of his ridiculous comments. No worries...everyone knows you're not him. }~)
The Teller of Truth November 18, 2012 at 01:20 AM
Yeah LBV Collins, I was replying to him & when they shut his fake acct down it looks kinda confusing. Sorry about that! I know 'you' are you and when 'he' comes on under different names. He says the stupidest stuff on here. I've got one more of his accts to shut down.....
The Teller of Truth November 18, 2012 at 01:21 AM
To the fake "Teller" above, you really need to get some help.
LBV Collins November 18, 2012 at 02:11 AM
Thanks CC. No problem, TOT. It is annoying how Patch let's multiple people create the same User ID.
KevWild November 18, 2012 at 02:25 AM
: (reposting from a different article cuz I'm too lazy to retype) ToT and CC: Sigh. It's not me you two. I got banned from the Patch for repeatedly uploading Pro-Measure-Z photos to Martha's article (her article was closed for comments, so I used photos). I still read the Patch, but stopped commenting. I created this name again (and just now) to let you both know you're barking up the wrong tree. I expect this account will be banned too, since I'm admitting I am the former KevWild. All my other friends, miss you guys. Feel free to email me. I expect this account will be closed quickly once Patch gets wise it's me, the previous KevWild. Kevin, Wildomar CA kevinrc@planetmail.com

Kev Wild you are not welcome on this or any other Patch site. please stand down. and go away.
KevWild November 18, 2012 at 02:29 AM
: Impressive!
Mirna Alfonso (Editor) November 18, 2012 at 02:34 AM
Okay Kevin, if you are the good guy, you can stay. but folks, help me track down this imposter who is making everyone's experience bad ones.
Constant Comment November 18, 2012 at 03:11 AM
Mirna, you're on the right track. He was waiting with baited breath as you can tell by the time stamps. As he has written above, you can reach him at kevinrc@planetmail.com. I would suggest banning his IP address from Patch cause he's just a troll. }~)
The Teller of Truth November 18, 2012 at 03:36 AM
@Mirna, it IS indeed KevWild doing all of this! He's been banned before for doing this very same thing (Not for posting pictures to Martha acct as he tried to say.) Its not a coinsidence that he just pops up right now out of the blue to say he didn't do anything wrong. Yeah right! Then he says he's admits hes going to be banned too for being the former KevWild. Hes admitting it. He posts his email to 'get a friend' because he's merely trolling. He misses us, we don't miss him. You got the right culprit. You are correct in banning him and all his aliases. Thank you for your help. Lets not let him put you in that position again.

Laurie Vaniman Turner December 08, 2012 at 08:10 PM
And how hateful so many people are?? I've faced zllions just like you..... no one believed I was clean as a pro fitness competitor on the OLYMPIA stage. Bleh.... lazy haters ..... lie detector me..... test me....whatever..... MIKE LASSIG is clean and da MAN!!! :-)
Laurie Vaniman Turner December 08, 2012 at 08:26 PM
Side note: fitness saved me. People who mock and say " ewww muscle, why?" Well I was a starving dancer my entire childhood..... not blessed with a natural metabolism, but trying to be the skinny ballerina ..... that I am not..... I'm athetic build by nature..... fitness blessed me to love own understand myself..... so when people say "ewww too much muscle" STOP? THINK ABOUT IT? God created all types..... your norm?? May not be minor, etc. Xoxox

Hey Mike, Congratulations on all that you have accomplished! You were a great kid and positive role model for your peers when I had you as a student way back in 8th grade at Temecula Middle School. I read about your body building career in the local newspaper and was impressed with both your work ethic and the positive image that you project. I am more impressed with your career as a CHP officer and the respect that you have gained for the fine work you do in law enforcement. Hey Mike, my wife always asks me why I cannot get more muscular like you? I tell her that marathon runners, like myself, will always be skinny and look malnourished and she just shrugs in disappointment! Take care Mike and I'll see you on the roads logging my long, often boring miles. Robert Eilek
