BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati police sergeant will serve five days in jail for dropping a handgun at a movie theater while she was drunk, causing panic and an evacuation, court records show.

Sgt. Shauna Lambert, 50, was sentenced to 55 days on house arrest and two years of probation with no alcohol consumption.

She also must complete 80 hours of community service, complete a rehabilitation program and stay away from the movie theater where the incident occurred.

Lambert pleaded no contest on March 29 to using weapons while intoxicated and inducing panic, court records show.

“I know Shauna to be a sincere and decent person,” said Sgt. Dan Hils, president of the union that represents Cincinnati police.

“I understand that she has had a tragic loss and has not handled it well. I pray that she gets the help she needs to return to working and being productive.”

The incident happened at the Cinemark Movie Theater on 500 Rivers Edge Road in Milford on Jan. 6.

When Milford police arrived, they said several witnesses told them an intoxicated female was acting erratic and dropped a handgun inside.

The incident caused panic and an evacuation, they said.

A witness to the incident told FOX19 NOW a crowd of people at a showing for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" held the woman down and kept the gun out of her hands until authorities arrived.

Lambert was taken into custody without incident, police said.

No shots were fired, and no one was hurt.
