Fire marshals and Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the Regal Cinemas in Abingdon Monday night after a customer became belligerent over the showing of “The Avengers” film and allegedly pulled a fire alarm inside the theater, according to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
According to a notice of investigation from the fire marshal’s office, the alarm was sounded at 6:45 p.m., and theater management notified police what had transpired. The theater is in the 400 block of Constant Friendship Boulevard.
According to Maryland electronic court records, David K. Walters, 34, of Royal Oaks Drive in Bel Air, was issued a criminal summons for false alarm/fire and has a trial scheduled for June 19 in Harford County District Court.
“Walters became disruptive and argued with the theater manager after discovering ‘The Avengers’ movie he was watching was a ‘closed caption’ film,” the notice of investigation states. “Management offered a refund or future tickets, which he refused and returned to the theater.”
