NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! A renowned California nurse was arrested this week for reportedly shooting her firearm into a neighbor’s apartment on Sunset Boulevard on Monday afternoon while “intoxicated,” according to the police.
In the midst of a dispute with her downstairs neighbor, Kathryn Pugh, a 39-year-old registered nurse who received a DAISY Award at Huntington Health in Arcadia in 2019, allegedly had too much alcohol and punctured her apartment.
Around 3:49 pm on Monday, police say the woman in the apartment below Pughs contacted 911 to report hearing a gunshot and seeing what seemed to be a bullet hole in her ceiling.
When Arcadia police arrived, they allegedly discovered Pugh “drunk and in possession of two firearms.” Police informed Fox News Digital that she had lawfully registered both guns and that they had never previously had any recorded interactions with her.

According to the police statement, “it appears both the victim and suspect have an ongoing quarrel about apartment-related concerns.”
She allegedly fired three shots in all through her floor and a wall outside, according to the police.
According to authorities, it “seems like they were fired on purpose” on Thursday.

Pugh is accused of firing a gun into an occupied building twice, both felonies. The event did not result in any known injuries.
Despite having no past criminal history, the court at her arraignment this week ordered that she be held without bail. Her initial bail was $250,000.
The Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascons Office, which has supported low or no bail for dangerous repeat offenders, claimed the court’s concern for public safety was the reason for the increased bond.
Gascon sought to completely delete a provision that prohibited his deputy district attorneys from requesting cash bail, but his office changed it in March.
At the time, Gascon’s office told Fox News Digital, “The District Attorney is fully dedicated to the key concepts that the voters of Los Angeles approved, including the goals of eliminating cash bail and maximizing pretrial release within the limits of public safety.” “Over the past 18 months, we have discovered several weaknesses in our current system of pretrial supervision that call for minor changes to the way we work toward those objectives. The agency may ask for bail in a narrowly restricted set of situations for people who pose an extreme risk to public safety, including those who have committed additional crimes while on pretrial release.”
The DAISY Award given out by hospitals honors “excellence in clinical abilities, caring, and compassion.” An inquiry for comment was not immediately answered by an institution representative.
