West Virginia authorities say several people fled a Nitro movie theater after one customer threatened to shoot another.
Moviegoers told deputies that a disruptive man threatened to shoot another audience member who told him to be quiet. Customers reported the threat to a security guard as they left.
Employees stopped the movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, while deputies arrested 52-year-old Tod Austiin Ingram of Cross Lanes. Humphreys says Ingram was unarmed.
Ingram was being held Saturday on a felony charge of making terroristic threats. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer.
