A South Florida man faces disorderly conduct charges after a disturbance at a theater showing The Dark Knight Rises. Miami Beach police say more than 100 moviegoers fled early yesterday after David Escamillo yelled "This is it!" during the film. Witnesses say they saw Escamillo leave the theater and return wearing a pair of black gloves. He was detained by movie patrons until police arrived.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, officers said he smelled strongly of alcohol and was yelling "I didn't shoot anybody." Police found no weapon, and no shots were fired. A records search revealed an outstanding warrant for battery. Court records didn't list an attorney for Escamillo. (More Dark Knight massacre stories.)
