Armed man arrested at ‘Dark Knight Rises’ screening
An Ohio man was arrested Saturday night after bringing several weapons and ammunition to a screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.”
According to Rolling Stone, Scott Smith was seen acting strangely in Westlake, Ohio when theater staff decided to approach him.
An off-duty police officer, who worked as a security guard, searched a bag that Smith was carrying and found a loaded handgun, extra ammunition and three knives. He had an extra knife on his person.
Police obtained a warrant to search Smith’s home, where they found numerous weapons.
Smith faces six counts of violating Ohio’s concealed-carry gun laws and could face additional charges.
