(NORWALK, Calif.) — Just two days after a movie theater shooting in Colorado left 12 people dead and 58 others injured, police in Norwalk, Calif., say they’ve arrested a man after he allegedly caused a ruckus during a screening of The Dark Night Rises last Sunday.
Apparently upset that the movie was slow in getting started, Clark Tabor, 52, reportedly held a cellphone in the air and yelled, “Does anyone have a gun?” and “I should go off like in Colorado.”
The allusions to the shooting in Aurora, Colo., which also took place during a screening of the latest Batman movie, were all too real for other spectators, who became concerned that Tabor was carrying a gun in his backpack.
Police were called and Tabor was arrested for making criminal threats. No weapon was found in his backpack.
Now held on $50,000 bail, Tabor will be in court Tuesday to face arraignment.
