Theater "Joker" Arrested
Man wearing "Joker" makeup arrested outside of Florida movie theater.
A man wearing makeup resembling "The Joker" at a Melbourne, Florida movie theater was arrested Wednesday.
Police were called at about 10:30 a.m. on a report of a man with Joker makeup and dyed pink hair pacing back and forth in front of the Premiere Theater.
Officers arrived and found Christopher Sides, 21, of Cocoa, as he was leaving the theater through the front doors.
Sides had purchased a ticket to see "The Expendables 2" and had made no threats at the theater.
Police said Sides has a warrant for failure to appear on a previous misdemeanor charge.
He was taken to Brevard County Jail.
In July, 24-year-old James Holmes, who died his hair like the Joker and dressed in dark clothing, went on a shooting rampage in Aurora, Colorado, killing 12 people.
