A Campbellsville woman has been arrested and charged with wanton endangerment and other charges after she allegedly fired a shotgun at another person.

Melinda Hubbard, 42, of 359 Pruyear Road was arrested at 12:02 a.m. Tuesday, June 3.

According to her arrest citation, Hubbard had allegedly been drinking and got into an argument with another person.

After the other person called someone to pick her up, Hubbard allegedly fired a shotgun into the air directly beside her.

When someone arrived to pick up the other woman, the arrest citation states, Hubbard then allegedly shot at that person as well.

Hubbard then allegedly ran into her home and grabbed her gun as Taylor County Sheriff's deputies approached her.

Hubbard was charged with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and alcohol intoxication.

Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy Mark Dickens investigated.

Hubbard pleaded not guilty to the charges in Taylor District Court on Wednesday, June 4.

Bond was set at $1,000 cash. Hubbard was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim and to not possess any guns. A preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
