Armed Theater Patron Placed Under House Arrest

Aug 28, 2012

The man who was arrested with a loaded gun, ammunition and knives at a showing of the latest "Batman" movie in Westlake has been placed on house arrest while awaiting trial.

A court date is scheduled September 24th for 37-year-old Scott Smith, who will be examined to determine his sanity. He was arrested in early August. His attorney says Smith had the weapons for protection in case someone tried to copy the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 people dead.
