Several Other People Arrested In Dark Knight Rises Related Movie Incidents

Posted Jul 24, 2012

Around 3-4 people are being accused of making threats after watching the new Batman movie in separate incidents. Due to the James Holmes incident, moviegoers have been nervous and security has been heightened at movie theaters. In Sierra Visa, Arizona, moviegoers panicked after an intoxicated man was confronted during a showing of the movie. The Cochise County Sheriff’s office said that there was mass hysteria and 50 people fled from the theater.

Michael William Borboa, a 27-year-old, was arrested on suspicious of disorderly conduct after threatening and intimidating people. Another man in Maine was arrested when he told authorities that he was on his way to shoot a former employer one day after watching The Dark Knight Rises.

Timothy Courtois (pictured above) of Biddeford, Maine, was been stopped for speeding. When police searched his car, they found an AK-47 assault weapon, 4 handguns, ammunition, and news clippings related to the mass shooting by James Holmes.

A man in Southern California was arrested after witnesses said that he made threats and referred to the Colorado shooting when the movie did not start on time. The L.A. County sheriff’s deputies were called to a cinema complex in Norwalk after moviegoers said that Clark Tabor, 52, shouted “I should go off like in Colorado.” He asked people “Does anybody have a gun?” Tabor had a backpack on his knees in the second row, but there were no weapons in the bag.
