Patrick Lambert caught shortly after fleeing court room; faces new charges

A Quincy man, who's pleaded Guilty to a lesser charge after an incident where he hit a woman with his van in The District, will now be sentenced in June and faces new charges.  

Patrick Lambert was in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday, where a June 4th sentencing hearing was set. That's after he failed to show up for a late March sentencing hearing. Lambert pleaded Guilty in late January to one count of Aggravated Battery, as part of a settlement with prosecutors. In return, a more serious count of Failing to report an Injury Accident was dropped. The Adams County Sheriff's Office says that Lambert faces new charges of resisting arrest and escape. During the hearing, Lambert had his bond revoked. A report says that as he was being taken into custody by court security officers, Lambert fled the courtroom and ran out of the court house. He was arrested shortly afterwards at 4th and Elm. Prosecutors say the original incident happened last May 9th, in an alley between 3rd and 4th Streets, just south of Maine Street. Lambert admitted that he hit a female pedestrian, then a vehicle before leaving the scene, going north on 4th Street. The woman was taken to the Blessing Hospital ER for treatment of her injuries.  

Lambert's in the Adams County Jail.
