PITTSBURGH - A woman accused of firing a Pittsburgh Steelers player's gun inside his house and then hiding in the home for 11 hours has yet to appear in court.

Lindsey Paulat, the mother of Steelers receiver Cedrick Wilson's 14-month-old baby, reportedly was undergoing a mental health evaluation pending her appearance before a judge, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Tuesday.

Paulat is charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in connection with a daylong standoff that ended Sunday morning when she threw his gun out the front door.

Robert Amann, chief of the Northern Regional Police Department, said the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute between Paulat and Wilson, the newspaper said.

"We're very happy that it resolved itself peacefully," Wlison's agent, Kirk Kirkwood of Birmingham, Ala., said.

"We anticipate that there are no other issues or action that we know of that will be involved. Cedrick and the young lady are both safe and secure and that's what we all want."
