Case continued for lawyer with gun at Batman movie
By The Associated Press
NEW HAVEN, CT (AP) -
The case of an attorney arrested in August
after he brought a handgun to a movie theater showing the Batman film
has been continued.
A prosecutor said Tuesday that Sung-Ho Hwang is due back in New Haven Superior Court on Dec. 3.
Hwang was charged with
breach of peace and interfering with police after officers said they
found a loaded handgun in his waistband. Police say he had a permit to
carry the weapon but didn't comply with their commands.
Hwang says the misdemeanor
charges are baseless and he followed police directions. He said he
brought the gun to protect himself late at night.
In July, during a screening
of the same film in Aurora, Colo., a man opened fire, killing 12
moviegoers and wounding 58. James Holmes has been charged with the
2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not
