CLEVELAND (WKOW) -- An Ohio man arrested with a loaded gun, ammunition and knives at a showing of the latest Batman movie has been indicted on three weapons counts.
A grand jury in Cleveland returned the indictment Monday against 37-year-old Scott Smith, of North Ridgeville, with two counts of carrying concealed weapons and one count of having a weapon under disability. Police say he's drug dependent and shouldn't have a weapon.
Bond was set at $250,000 and arraignment was scheduled for August 27.
Smith's attorney says his client had the weapons for protection in case someone tried to copy the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 dead.
Smith was arrested at showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Westlake on August 4.
