Los Angeles County Sheriff's arrested 39-year-old Landry Boullard of Lancaster yesterday on suspicion of attempted murder, according to MyFoxLA. While at a showing of Shutter Island recently in a Lancaster movie theatre, Boullard allegedly stabbed a female movie-goer in the neck with a meat thermometer when she vocally objected to another theatre patron talking on her cellphone during the film. The cellphone talker left the theatre with two men, one of whom allegedly Boullard--who came back to the theater and attacked the victim.
