US man indicted in Batman movie weapons case



US man indicted in Batman movie weapons case 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.
