SIERRA VISTA, Ariz., (KGUN9-TV) - Police arrested a man Friday after he entered a Cinemark Theater intoxicated and carrying a large backpack, according to Carol Capas with the Cochise County Sheriff's Department.
Capas tells KGUN9 that Michael William Borboa was acting strangely, and startled several patrons in the theater during the Dark Knight Rises movie.
One person confronted Borboa, and then mass hysteria occurred and more than 50 patrons ran from the theater.
Several off-duty border patrol agents tackled Borboa and a deputy removed Borboa from the theater, taking his backpack.
Deputies found alcohol in the backpack.
Borboa was arrested and transported to the CCSO Jail Sierra Vista and was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and threatening and intimidating.
Capas says that the sheriff's department had increased security in response to the mass shooting at the theater in Colorado, and that there were extra deputies in the area at the time of this incident.
