Ohio Man Arrested At Movie Theater With Bag of Weapons

August 07, 2012  | 

A 37-year-old Ohio man was charged Monday, after police say he walked into the Regal Cinemas at Crocker Park in Westlake, carrying a satchel full of weapons.

Scott Smith bought a movie ticket for the 10 p.m. showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" Saturday night, according to the Westlake Police Department.

A keen-eyed theater manager and off-duty Westlake P.D. officer, who was working security, stopped Smith shortly after he sat down in his theater seat. The officer asked to search his bag, and Smith complied, without incident. Inside the bag were a loaded 9mm Glock handgun, two additional loaded magazines, and two knives.

Ok, just read the news item. Talk about spreading panic and over reacting in print. He didn't have a CC permit. Then they state that the police were checking to see if he was on meds that would prohibit him from owning a weapon. Nothing like a little libel to help seal the case before it goes to trial with no basis for a comment like that. Blues, stay safe and sane.
