A tense situation was recently resolved peacefully in the Las Vegas Valley. Renee Coughlin allegedly pointed a gun at her boyfriend. She even pulled the trigger. Fortunately, the gun didn’t fire. The boyfriend left and telephoned police who used a crisis negotiator and SWAT to coax Coughlin out of her residence. She’s being charged with domestic-violence assault with a deadly weapon.

The participants in this situation were fortunate that no one was injured. Still, Coughlin may be facing a sizable fine and considerable jail time because of a deadly weapon being involved. Moreover, a conviction under NRS 200.485 may impact her life forever.
