PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson withdrew a protection order against his ex-girlfriend Monday after they agreed to have no contact with each other and share custody of their 1-year-old daughter.
Wilson was in Allegheny County court but declined to comment to reporters. Lindsey Paulat was not in court and was being released from a behavioral health clinic, said her lawyer, Jerome DeRiso.
Paulat still faces criminal charges of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
Wilson filed for the protection-from-abuse order after Paulat kept police at bay outside his Pine Township home during a nearly 12-hour standoff that ended with her surrender this month.
Wilson had ended their relationship, prompting an argument and the standoff, said Paul Goltz, Wilson's lawyer. Paulat threatened to kill herself with Wilson's gun and fired the gun several times inside the home, according to Wilson's request for a protection order.
