Loud sex mistaken for fight leads to gunshots at Md. hotel

TOWSON, Md. — Loud sex at a Towson Days Inn led to a police altercation and gunshots on Monday, charging documents say.

According to police, a security guard called police about a potential fight at the hotel after front desk clerks overheard loud noises while on a call with a room.

When officers arrived, they spoke with two women who were supposedly in the room when the commotion was heard. Both women told police they weren't fighting but were having sex.

At the request of the security officer, police ordered the women to pack up and leave the hotel.

One of the women thought she left a cell phone in the room, at which point an officer escorted her back to look for it. The other woman, 34-year-old Allison Daughtrey went into the lobby and began arguing with hotel staff.

At that point, the security guard claims Daughtrey pointed a gun at him. While trying to disarm Daughtrey, the gun fired and struck a door frame in the lobby.

A Baltimore County Police officer was outside heading back to his patrol car when he heard the gunshot. The officer returned to arrest her.

Daughtey told police that the security guard hit her first and that she swung her purse at him to protect her self. She claims that's what caused the gun to fly across the room and fire.

Police wrote in the charging documents that surveillance footage shows Daughtrey entering the lobby, getting into an altercation with the guard, and later pulling out a gun.

Daughtrey admitted to police that the gun was hers and she bought it in North Carolina.

The security guard was later taken to the hospital for an injury he says he sustained after Daughtrey bit him.

Daughtrey is currently being held without bond on multiple charges including attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and gun crimes.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 4.
