3 Arrested in Separate ‘Dark Knight’ Incidents

(AP) – Police across the country have arrested at least three people accused of making threats during or after watching the new Batman movie days after a fatal theater shooting in Colorado. In Maine, state police pulled over a man who said he was on his way to shoot a former employer one day after watching “The Dark Knight Rises.” Timothy Courtois was arrested Sunday after a police search found weapons and news clippings of the massacre in Aurora, Colo. In Arizona, sheriff’s officials say a confrontation with an intoxicated man during a Friday showing caused 50 people to flee the theater. A man in Southern California was accused of causing panic when the movie didn’t start. Witnesses say the man alluded to the shooting and asked whether anyone had a gun.
