Woman Who Was Charged After Rockville Stabbing Facing More Accusations in Unrelated Incident

It was another volatile incident, police said.

A Vernon woman who was charged five months ago in relation to a Rockville stabbing incident in which the victim was transported to the hospital on the hood of a police cruiser is facing more charges for an unrelated chaotic incident in town, police said.

Lisa Gilbert, 41, of 162 West Main St., was charged with second-degree breach of peace and interfering, police said. She was taken into custody at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday at 587 East Middle Turnpike, Manchester, police said. That is the address of Community Health Resources, a non-profit, community-based behavioral health agency that provides services to children, adults and families who struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues.

She is due in court on Oct. 16 after posting a $2,500 bond, police said.

Police said the charges against Gilbert stem from an altercation in Vernon on April 25. That day, her son was arrested and she interfered with police  by opening the door of a cruiser while her son was in the car, police said. 

Gilbert was yelling and swearing at the arresting officer as she was being pulled away by her friends, police said. The officer was unable to make an arrest that night at the scene  because he was dealing with another man at the same time.

A warrant was issued for Gilbert. police said.

That incident was five days after the stabbing near the corner of Ward and Union streets, police records indicate. It started out as a argument between several people and escalated, police have said.

With no available ambulances, police out the victim on the hood of a cruiser and slowly transported him the short distance up the hill to Rockville General Hospital. The victim recovered, but was one of several people charged in the incident.

This makes no sense, from what I understand Lisa was in jail since that 'stabbing incident" why did the police wait until she was released to arrest her on the warrant? Why didn't they serve her the warrant at one of her court dates or while she was locked up? As much as I don't care for this woman it just seems unfair how this was handled.
