Scott Smith Arrested For Carrying Gun, Ammo, Knives Into Dark Knight Rises Showing in Ohio

by at . Comments

A Cleveland-area man was arrested for carrying a gun, ammunition and several knives into a 10 p.m. Saturday showing of the The Dark Knight Rises.

Police in North Ridgeville, Ohio, said that a manager was suspicious of the man, who was carrying the items in a satchel, when he arrived in the theater.

Just weeks after the infamous and tragic Colorado shooting, the manager and an off-duty police officer working security searched the man's bag.

He was arrested without incident and his home was searched Monday night. It's unclear if the raid on his property unearthed any other weapons.

The suspect’s name and other details have not been released officially by police, but unconfirmed reports identify him as 37-year-old Scott Smith.

Smith reportedly does not have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

James Holmes, 24, is charged with killing 12 people and wounding 58 more at a midnight showing of the The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo., July 20.

There seems to be a rise in home grown terror. If things like this keep happening then we will need to have security or police in any place where the public may gather. What a sad state of affairs this country is in.

Yeah, I don't blame him. I'm probably gonna be packing everywhere I go so I can shoot a crazy if they start shooting at me. He was probably just afraid of a repeat incident, just like the one in Aurora.
