A decorated California nurse is behind bars this week after allegedly firing her handgun into a neighbor’s Sunset Boulevard apartment while "intoxicated" Monday afternoon, according to authorities.
Police say the woman in the apartment below Pugh’s called 911 to report the sound of a gunshot and an apparent bullet hole in her ceiling around 3:49 p.m. Monday.
Arcadia police officers arrived and allegedly found Pugh "intoxicated and in possession of two handguns."
She had legally registered both weapons, police told Fox News Digital, and they said they had no previous documented interactions with her.
Police allege she fired three rounds in total, through her floor and an exterior wall.
"It appears they were fired intentionally," police told Fox News Digital Thursday.
Pugh faces two felony charges of discharging a firearm at an inhabited dwelling.
Her bail was initially $250,000, but a judge ordered her held without bail at her arraignment this week, despite a lack of prior criminal history.
In March, Gascon's office revised a policy barring his deputy district attorney's from seeking cash bail, something he had wanted to eliminate altogether.
A spokesperson for the institution did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
