Fire Alarm Pulled During ‘The Avengers’

ABINGDON, Md., (UPI) — Authorities in Maryland said a man allegedly pulled a fire alarm because he was angry at the closed captioning at a showing of “The Avengers.”

Fire marshals and Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies said they were called to Regal Cinemas in Abingdon Monday night after the fire alarm was pulled at 6:45 p.m., The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday.

“(Subject) became disruptive and argued with the theater manager after discovering ‘The Avengers’ movie he was watching was a ‘closed caption’ film,” the State Fire Marshal’s Office said in a report. “Management offered a refund or future tickets, which he refused and returned to the theater.”

“Once the movie ended, (Subject) became belligerent and argumentative with management once again and at that point (Subject) intentionally pulled the fire alarm in the lobby and left the premises,” the report said.

The fire marshal’s office said the 34-year-old man, whose name was not released, will be served with a criminal summons requiring a court appearance.
