CLEVELAND -- A North Ridgeville man has been sentenced for bringing a bag of weapons into a local movie theater last summer.
A Cleveland judge sentenced Scott A. Smith, 38, to six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to two counts of carrying a concealed weapon. He received credit for 20 days already served.
Westlake police said on August 4, 2012, Smith brought a loaded gun, several knives and ammunition to a showing of The Dark Knight at Regal Cinema in Crocker Park.
Smith’s attorney, Matthew Bruce, has repeatedly denied reports of his client being a copy-cat of the tragic shootings in Denver, Colorado, explaining Smith had the weapons for protection.
