WEXFORD, Pa. (AP) -Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson's girlfriend was arrested Sunday after a nearly 12-hour standoff at Wilson's home that led to the evacuation of about 70 neighbors, police said.
Lindsey Paulat was charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person, said Robert Amman of the Northern Regional Police Department.
The standoff began a few hours after an argument Saturday morning between Wilson and the 26-year-old Paulat. 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 were later evacuated as a precaution. The standoff ended when Paulat threw the gun from the front door, and was taken into custody about 12:45 a.m. Sunday.
Amman said that Paulat initially only wanted to talk to Wilson. Wilson returned about 5 p.m., but did not speak to Paulat.
``She was extremely upset and not being forthcoming with us initially, so it took some time to get through to her,'' Amman said.
Wilson was not available for comment.
