Metro mother arrested after son gets into fight with teen over a video game
A metro woman was arrested over the weekend after police say she attempted to kick in the door of a home after her juvenile son got into a fight with a teen over a video game.
Oklahoma City Police Department reports show that Lasandra Kay Gilbert, 34, was arrested Aug. 19 on complaints of attempted burglary and public drunkenness.
At approximately 12:21 p.m. Aug. 19 police were called to a disturbance at a home in the 1900 block of NE 55 Street. The calling party told police that four people were at the home attempting to fight her teenage son and that the door had been kicked in.
Police arrived and found Gilbert, her 14-year-old son and three other women at the home. An officer noted that Gilbert's son appeared agitated and had his shirt off and was attempting to get to the home.
Gilbert reportedly had grabbed her son from behind and was holding him when the officer approached and attempted to place the teen in handcuffs. She then told the officer "You ain't puttin' him in no handcuffs". The officer then told Gilbert to get back and she allegedly told the officer again that he wasn't putting the boy in handcuffs. The officer then took both individuals to the ground and placed them in handcuffs.
Police then spoke with the female calling party who stated Gilbert's son had stayed the night and the two had gotten into a fight over a video game that morning. The woman told Gilbert's son to leave the home to separate the fight. The boy went outside and called his grandmother, who reportedly sent Gilbert and the three other women to the home.
When the three arrived they began knocking on the doors and windows of the home and at one point, Gilbert reportedly kicked in a side door at the home. The resident of the home was able to slide a freezer in front of the door to stop it from opening.
After the incident, Gilbert was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. Her son and the three other women were not charged with any crime.
