APB for Sheriff Gilbert

Who shot the sheriff or, is it, who did the sheriff want to shoot? My desk mate here at the station, Mark Tauscheck, dug up this little ditty about former Dallas County Sheriff Brian Gilbert...

Here's what he wrote...

More problems for former Dallas County Sheriff Brian Gilbert... Last year, Gilbert was found guilty of stealing $120,000 from his own department. Now he's accused of harassing his ex-wife and threatening to kill her over the phone.

Gilbert now lives in Arizona. According to Dallas County District Court records, Gilbert faces first and third degree harassment charges in connection with phone calls he made last month to his ex-wife, Tina Gilbert. According to the affidavit, on June 11th, Brian Gilbert called and threatened Tina and one of her friends, stating "he would come to Iowa and put a bullet in Tina Gilbert's head and be gone without anyone knowing it."

It also states he called her several times that same week to intimidate her and imply he was going to hurt himself. The Dallas County attorney would not comment on the Gilbert case. But he did say typically those charged with misdemeanors are not extradited to Iowa. He said the person would only face arrest if he returned to the state.
