Ohio Man Charged with Bringing Weapons into Dark Knight showing

Man had gun, two knives in satchel.


An Ohio man faces weapons charges after police in Westlake say he walked into a movie theater to see The Dark Knight Rises carrying a satchel full of weapons, WKYC-TV reports.

A theater manager and off-duty Westlake police officer, who was working security, stopped Scott Smith shortly after he sat down in his theater seat Saturday night, WKYC says. The officer asked to search his bag, and Smith complied. A loaded 9mm Glock handgun, two additional loaded magazines and two knives were in the bag, WKYC says. A third knife was found under the man's clothes, police said.
