Standoff at The Entertainer's House

The Steelers found their way back into the headlines on Championship Sunday, and it was for all the wrong reasons. A 12-hour standoff at the home of Steelers WR Cedrick "The Entertainer" Wilson ended peacefully early Sunday morning when police took Wilson's girlfriend into custody.
Lindsey Paulat, 26, of Tarentum has been charged with aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person, said Robert Amman of the Northern Regional Police Department.

She was taken into custody at 12:48 a.m. today. The standoff began at 1 p.m. Saturday and resulted in the evacuation of residents in the housing plan.
Some quick facts about this developing story:
  • Paulat fired two shots from a .35mm handgun owned by Wilson. No one was injured.
  • At least four police departments responded: Northern Regional, Franklin Park, Allegheny County and Pittsburgh.
  • The Allegheny County Sheriff's Office, Allegheny County SWAT team and the county sheriff were all on scene.
  • More than a dozen police cars sat at the entrance to the housing plan, which was evacuated at 2 PM on Saturday. About 70 residents had been evacuated from their homes during the standoff. Some homeowners were allowed back in their homes by 6 PM, but about 40 remained evacuated beyond that time..

More news on this story as it develops. Sounds like a rather ugly incident to say the least.
