Man with body armor and gun arrested in movie theater
GRAND BLANC, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A man faces charges after a scary incident at a Michigan movie theater that stirred up images of the deadly theater shooting in Colorado.
The man was found inside the Grand Blanc movie theater wearing body armor and carrying a gun with at least 34 rounds of ammunition on him.
The FBI says police were called to the Trillium Theater in Grand Blanc Township near Flint on Tuesday night after someone noticed the vest and gun.
Police say Cassidy Delavergne was watching a movie when they found him.
He also had more than 100 rounds of ammo in his car and was carrying a fake CIA badge.
Delavergne told police he carried the phony ID to minimize concerns about his gun.
He says he brought the gun with him because he just got off work and didn't want to leave it in the car.
The discovery in the theater has many on edge. Investigators say Delavergne claims to have a concealed weapon permit.
He is still in jail right now. He hasn't been charged with crimes related to the gun or the ammo, but he was charged Wednesday with possessing the fake CIA badge.
