James Holmes Forced To Wear Hannibal Face Mask In Jail
By Lydia Warren and Daniel Bates In Aurora, Colorado
The man accused of gunning down cinema-goers at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado has been spitting so much at officers while he is held in police custody, they have been forced to put a face guard on him.
After James Holmes was arrested in the movie theater’s parking lot, he sat wide-eyed and twitching and refused to cooperate with investigators, sources revealed.
It also emerged that when authorities placed evidence bags over the 24-year-old’s hands to preserve gunshot residue, he began playing with them as if they were two puppets, the sources told CALL7.
He is being held in isolation at the Arapahoe County Jail but the continual spitting has forced authorities to cover his face while he is being moved.
