Moviegoer Arrested For Making Threats to 'go off like in Colorado' at Local Showing of "The Dark Knight Rises"
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department wasn't kidding when they said they'd be on top of any shenanigans at weekend showings of "The Dark Knight Rises" following Friday morning's deadly shooting at a Colorado cineplex. So when a man yelled out about wanting a gun, and implying he'd handle things like the Colorado shooting suspect, that man was arrested.The incident took place Sunday evening during the previews at the AMC Norwalk 20, according to City News Service. The impatient moviegoer was 52-year-old Clark Tabor, who reportedly held his cellphone in the air and shouted: "Does anyone have a gun?" followed by "I should go off like in Colorado."
Tabor, who was carrying a backpack that did not hold any weapons, was booked on suspicion of making a criminal threat and jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail. Arraignment is expected to take place today in Bellflower.
