Man arrested after ‘mass hysteria’ at Sierra Vista movie theater
A confrontation at a Sierra Vista movie theater Friday evening led to some frightening moments for patrons, authorities said.
The incident occurred at 5:10 p.m. at the Cinemark Theater at The Mall at Sierra Vista when a man entered the theater carrying a large backpack.
The man, identified as Michael William Borboa, 26, appeared drunk and was acting strangely during a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” startling other patrons, according to the Cochise County Sheriff’s Department.
A moviegoer confronted the man, which led to more than 50 people leaving the theater.
