The wife of a former Cypress mayor, Brinda Mc Coy was rushed to a local hospital on Sunday after local law enforcement received an emergency at approximately 10:50 am , in what is being called a “life threatening” situation.
On Monday, Cypress Police Officials released a statement claiming that officers and paramedics arrived at the 4500 block of Tuscani regarding “a medical aid” call.
“Upon arrival at the residence, officers came upon the victim, Brinda McCoy, and immediately began life-saving measures,” said Lieutenant Steve Ramsey in a statement to the media on Monday.
Paramedics from the Orange County Fire Authority arrived shortly thereafter and began additional treatment. McCoy was subsequently transported to a local hospital for additional treatment.
“Cypress Police Detectives responded to the scene to conduct a thorough investigation. At this point in the preliminary investigation, there does not appear to be foul play involved,” Ramsey said.
McCoy, the former “First Lady” of Cypress, was charged with seven felony counts for shooting at responding police officers after calling 911 and initiating a dramatic stand-off with members of the police department back in December of 2010.
Her husband Frank Mc Coy served as both a Councilman and Mayor of Cypress, as well as a Chief of Police in Oceanside.
McCoy, 47, was charged with five felony counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm on a peace officer and two felony counts of discharging a firearm with gross negligence with sentencing enhancements for the personal discharge of a firearm.
Back on Dec. 16, 2010, McCoy is accused of calling 911 and stating she needed assistance. Responding Cypress Police Department officers attempted to get McCoy to come out of her residence. McCoy is accused of refusing to leave her house, pointing a firearm at her head, and then at the ceiling before pointing it directly at officers outside. Police warned the defendant that if she fired her weapon, she would harm police officers.
McCoy is accused of firing the gun twice at police officers who were stationed behind two parked vehicles outside the defendant’s home. SWAT stopped McCoy using a bean bag gun.
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will update this situation.
