Woman arrested after allegedly taking gun from police officer

Written by

BANGOR - A local woman was arrested over the weekend following a scary situation at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Alexis Lannon is accused of grabbing a police officer's gun while in the emergency room.


She now is charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.


Lannon also made headlines in 2015 after she was spotted walking down Route 2 in Carmel with a homemade weapon.


Police said she was destroying property and ended up getting shot by a Penobscot County sheriff's deputy after approaching in a threatening matter.


She was found incompetent to stand trial in that case.


Lannon was expected to appear in a Bangor courtroom Monday afternoon to answer to the latest charge.
