David Michael Gilbert was served a copy of the above complaint this weekend on October 29th, 2011 around 2:30 p.m. - about the same time as the original incident 2 years before. Gilbert answered the door with a gun in his hand and brandished it in a way that made sure the process server saw it. Gilbert refused to accept the paperwork. A copy of the complaint was left outside his front door at 948 San Gabriel in Henderson Nevada. Gilbert wouldn't be worried if he had nothing to hide.
