Cleveland: A US 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 on Tuesday against 37-year-old Scott A Smith 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 USD 250,000 and arraignment was scheduled for August 27.

Smith`s attorney says his client had the weapons on August 04 for protection in case someone tried to copy last month`s Colorado theatre shooting that left 12 dead.

There was no immediate response to a request for comment on the indictment.
