NITRO, W.Va. – Several people left a Kanawha County movie theater Friday night after a man allegedly threatened to begin shooting a gun.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Tod Austin Ingram, 52, of Cross Lanes, and charged him with making terroristic threats, a felony.
Investigators said Ingram was in one of the screening rooms at Great Escape Theater in Nitro at just before 9 p.m. Friday when fellow patrons said he was being loud and arguing with people during the movie. He then said he had a gun and threatened to shoot one of the patrons. Deputies arrived shortly and arrested him.
Deputies are asking people who left the theater to contact investigators to provide more information on what happened.
Ingram is in the South Central Regional Jail on $25,000 bail.
