SUDBURY -- Warning: This story contains graphic details. Reader discretion is advised.
A Huron Shores woman was arrested and faces several charges after an incident where she allegedly busted into a home and pointed a replica gun at her common-law partner.
Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said officers with the East Algoma detachment were called to a domestic disturbance at home in Huron Shores, east of Sault Ste. Marie, shortly after midnight on Thursday.
Police said a man was visiting two friends when his common-law spouse forced her way inside the home and waved a handgun at the three people inside before pointing it at her partner.
"A scuffle took place with the common-law spouse being forced out of the house," police said in a news release Friday morning.
Officers located the accused and during the arrest, the gun was found to be a replica air pistol.
As a result, a 48-year-old woman from Huron Shores, whose gender was confirmed by OPP Const. Bev Gauthier, has been charged with forcible entry, pointing a firearm and spousal assault with a weapon.
The accused appeared in bail court via video Thursday and remains in custody in Sault Ste. Marie.
None of the allegations has been proven in court.
