O'side Police Chief's Wife Enters Plea

The wife of Oceanside's police chief pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges she fired a gun at officers.

Police Chief Frank McCoy's wife, 47-year-old Brinda McCoy, is charged with five felony counts.

Authorities say that on Dec. 16 she called 911 and fired at police officers during a three-hour standoff at the couple's home in the Orange County city of Cypress.

She was arrested after being shot with a beanbag gun and is free on $250,000 bail.

In court Wednesday, the McCoys were ordered to remove all firearms from their home including the chief's service weapon, according to our media partners North County Times.

Brinda McCoy was also ordered to avoid working as a registered nurse until she completes a mental health evaluation, the paper reported.

She faces up to 58 years in prison if convicted.
