WEXFORD, Pa. (AP) -The girlfriend of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was in custody after a nearly 12-hour standoff at Wilson's home that led to the evacuation of about 70 neighbors, police said.
Lindsey Paulat, 26, of Tarentum, was charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person.
Paulat was not immediately arraigned because she was being held Monday, but police could not say where or why under federal medical privacy rules. Northern Regional police chief Robert Amann told The Associated Press on Monday that he hoped Paulat would be released and arraigned later this week.
The standoff began a few hours after an argument Saturday morning between Wilson and Paulat, Amann said. Wilson left his Pine Township home about noon, and Paulat's mother came to talk to her.
While her mother was there, Paulat fired two shots from Wilson's handgun into a wall, police said. No one was injured.
Paulat's mother left, and police were called around 1 p.m.; neighbors later were evacuated as a precaution. The standoff ended when Paulat threw the gun from the front door, police said.
She was taken into custody about 12:45 a.m. Sunday.
Wilson was not available for comment, but Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said the player was fine.
Media reports that Paulat was waiting in the Allegheny County Jail to be arraigned were incorrect, Amann said.
``We have charges filed on her and she's not out free in the public, though she's not arraigned yet,'' Amann said Monday.
