Miami Man Arrested After Another Dark Knight Scare

Posted By Parks & Braxton, PA || 31-Jul-2012

Since James Holmes shot and killed a dozen innocents at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, movie goers have been more cautious. As well, theaters have been taken extra safety measures to keep patrons safe at the theater. Recently, a man in Miami caused a scare when he allegedly fired a gun in the middle of a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. According to local reports, 30 officers were rushed to the Miami Beach Regal Cinemas to respond to a 911 call that another shooter was among the moviegoers.

The offender stood up near the middle of the movie and began walking back and forth up and down the stadium seating stairs. He got into a verbal argument with another individual in the theater who asked him to sit down. He left the theater after the confrontation, but arrived again wearing black gloves. Witnesses say that he shouted “This is it!" and then allegedly fired a gun. Investigators have not been able to find the gun that he supposedly possessed. The offender has vehemently denied bringing a firearm into the theater.

Whether or not a gun was involved, the man caused pandemonium when he sent 140 people running from the theater in fear of their lives. The police held down the offender, who erratically shouted that he didn’t shoot anybody. Police say that he smelled of alcohol, and they believe that he was intoxicated at the time of the crime. One witness told local news that the experience was extremely frightening. The offender is now in custody and police are investigating the situation and sorting through conflicting witness reports. If you have been charged with an offense like this one, your crimes could range from disturbing the peace to assault with a deadly weapon. All of this is determined by whether or not witnesses can recall your actions, and what evidence the police can dig up.
