Staff at the Days Inn Hotel, Baltimore, asked the hotel’s security guard to investigate after a loud commotion was reported in one of the rooms.
Believing that a fight was going on, the security guard called for help from local police.
Cops gained access to the room and interviewed the two women inside.
Both insisted that they weren’t fighting, but having sex.
Nevertheless the couple were asked to leave the premises.
They did so, but as they were on there way out one of the women realised that she’d left her phone behind and asked to go back to the room to check.
While she did that her companion, 34-year-old Allison Daughtrey, was left to wait in the hotel lobby where she got into an altercation with hotel staff.
One thing led to another and Daughtrey produced a pistol from her bag and pointed it at him, the hotel security guard told WMAR.
He tried to take the handgun away from her and in the ensuing struggle the gun went off.
The police officer who had been called to the scene was on his way back to his car but returned to the lobby on hearing the gunshot and arrested Daughtrey.
She claims that the security guard hit her first, at which point she tried to hit him with her handbag, resulting in the weapon falling out and going off.
No-one was shot during the incident but the security guard required treatment for a bite wound.
Daughtrey is currently being held on multiple charges including Attempted Second Degree Murder, First and Second Degree Assault, and firearms offences.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for October 4 at 8:30 a.m. at the District Court for Baltimore County.
