CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A police spokesman says it's unlikely charges will be filed against a North Carolina woman so upset about her financial situation that she walked into a TV station and put what turned out to be an unloaded gun to her head.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokesman Robert Fey said Wednesday the woman was only a threat to herself, not to anyone in WSOC-TV's studios in Charlotte.
     
Fifty-one-year-old Wendy Cosby Naidas of Conover was undergoing a mental evaluation at a Charlotte hospital.
     
Police say Naidas walked into the lobby of the TV station during its Tuesday evening news broadcast. The station went off the air for about an hour and the building was evacuated and locked down.
     
No one was hurt or taken hostage and police took the woman into custody.
