Robert Wagner's daughter arrested after shooting at Malibu home

The daughter of actor Robert Wagner and actress Natalie Wood was arrested on suspicion of narcotics possession after a reported shooting in Malibu, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said Monday.

Deputies were called to a home in the 24400 block of Piuma Road in unincorporated Malibu on April 22, following a report of a shooting, according to a sheriff's statement. Courtney Wagner, 38, of Malibu, and Matthew Cox, 24, were at the residence when deputies arrived.

During the investigation, they found several handguns and several baggies "of what appeared to be narcotics at the location," according to sheriff's officials.

A short time later, Cox was arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm in a negligent manner, sheriff's officials said. Wagner was booked on suspicion of narcotics possession, according to sheriff's officials.

They were released on bond after being booked at the Malibu/Lost Hills sheriff’s station, officials said.

In November, the department announced it was reopening its case into the 1981 death of Robert Wagner's wife, actress Natalie Wood. Her death at the time was ruled an accidental drowning while boating off Santa Catalina Island.

By January, sheriff's investigators said they had uncovered no new evidence in her death nor anything to suggest it was not an accident.
