Fight Erupts at ‘Dark Knight’ Screening

Days after the Colorado shooting massacre, Dark Knight Rises moviegoers remain on the edge of their seats. Panic ensued at a screening outside Pittsburgh Sunday night when a fight broke out in the theater, prompting people in the audience to rush—and push and shove in the process—toward the exit doors. Local officials said the fight started in a bathroom, when a child bothered a man inside an occupied stall and the man then lost his cool with the child’s mother, ultimately punching her in the face. Someone shouted “Gun!” at one point, sending already anxious moviegoers into a tizzy. The man is receiving misdemeanor charges.
