Bond Set For Armed Theater Patron

Aug 10, 2012

Bond is set at 250-thousand dollars for the man charged with carrying a loaded gun, ammunition and knives into a showing of the latest Batman movie last weekend in Westlake. 37-year-old Scott Smith is due back in court on Tuesday to face charges of carrying concealed weapons and having weapons under disability. Westlake police Lieutenant Ray Arcuri says an off-duty officer working security and the theater manager searched his satchel and found the weapons.  Smith's attorney says his client meant no harm, but wanted to protect himself in case someone tried to copy last month's deadly Colorado theater shooting.
