'Dark Knight' Weapons Suspect Trial Begins Today

Scott Smith facing three weapons charges, two felony counts.

Scott Smith, the man caught and various medical supplies into a Westlake theater Aug. 4, 2012 is scheduled for trial at 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 10 in the Cuyahoga Court of Common Pleas.

Smith, of North Ridgeville, entered the Regal Cinemas in Westlake carrying a Maxpedition bag, which is commonly used to transport firearms.

An off-duty officer inside the theater noticed the suspect carrying the bag and followed him into the I-Max Theater which was showing the movie Batman.

Once inside the theater, the officer approached Smith and requested to see the bag he had in his possession. A search of the suspects bag revealed the weapons and supplies. Smith was then placed under arrest.

Smith's lawyer claimed the weapons were for self-defense.

He was charged with Having Weapons Under Disability, a third degree felony; one charge of Carrying A Concealed Weapon, a felony; and Carrying A Concealed Weapon (misdemeanor).

The incident came on the heels of the July 20, 2012 shooting in Aurora, CO that left 12 dead and dozens injured.

Judge Kathleen Ann Sutula will hear the case.
