ANNAPOLIS (WUSA) -- A 25-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday after a disorderly conduct incident at a movie theater in Annapolis in which he allegedly simulated having a gun.
At approximately 3:47 p.m., officers responded to the Bow Tie Cinemas at the Annapolis Harbour Center in the 2400 block of Solomons Island Road to investigate the incident. The suspect, later identified as Kyle Nolan Tanner, fled the theater in the direction of Route 2 northbound. He was later stopped by officers in the area of Old Solomons Island Road and Forest Drive and taken into custody.
According to authorities, witnesses told them that Tanner entered the theater while a movie was playing, sat down in the front row and began yelling expletives toward the screen and the patrons. They told police he left the theater twice before returning one last time. He reportedly began pointing at people, simulating that he had a gun while continuing to curse at patrons. Some people fled the theater and the police were called.
Tanner was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment and second degree assault. He is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Annapolis.
