Steelers receiver Cedrick Wilson has obtained a protection-from-abuse order against his girlfriend, who is charged with firing two shots in the player's home.
Lindsey Paulat, 26, of Fawn, is charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in the incident Saturday. She remains in custody and her family has said they won't comment on the case.
Police say Ms. Paulat fired two shots from Mr. Wilson's gun after they got in an argument, but after Mr. Wilson left the home in Pine. Police say Ms. Paulat refused to surrender for about 12 hours, prompting them to evacuate some neighbors.
Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett says Mr. Wilson filed for the court order yesterday.
