Man arrested bringing gun, ammunition, knives in theater

Police in Westlake, Ohio arrested a Cleveland-area man on Saturday night after he tried to smuggle weapons into a 10 p.m. showing of The Dark Knight Rises. A theater manager became suspicious of the man after seeing him bringing a satchel with him to the movie. The manager then contacted an off-duty police officer who was working security. The man was searched and a gun, ammunition and several knives were found in his bag. He was promptly arrested and his house was searched – though no name or reports of what was found have been released yet. This incident is a big scare considering the horrifying tragedy that took place at a Colorado midnight screening of the highly acclaimed finale of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy on July 20. ~Stacy Raivich

    Are you kidding me! WTF..Copycats?!? This will not only hurt revenue and scare the movie going public as well. Good job noticing and doing something about it!! Major trajedy was avoided the theatre worker and the off duty cop should be commended!

    OMG thxs man for bringing my fears back. Seriously, what is wrong with people? I think that in order for this to not happen (as someone suggested a couple weeks ago) metal detectors should be placed in the theater building and security cameras should be placed near the emergency exits inside and out. I know it may be too much but I dont want this to happen again. Anyone agree?

    this is just insane. people are f***ed. you cant even go to a movie without some retard bringing guns to a theatre. shoot him. good riddance. time to seriously up the ante when it comes to punishment. and while youre at it, ban cellphones from films,period,and make the fine for using one in your car a minimum $1000.
