In Maine, state police pulled over a man who said he was on his way to shoot a former employer one day after watching "The Dark Knight Rises." Timothy Courtois was arrested Sunday after a police search found weapons and news clippings of the massacre in Aurora, Colo.

In Arizona, sheriff's officials say a confrontation with an intoxicated man during a Friday showing caused 50 people to flee the theater.

A man in Southern California was accused of causing panic when the movie didn't start. Witnesses say the man alluded to the shooting and asked whether anyone had a gun.
