Man Wearing "Joker" Makeup Apprehended Outside of Florida Movie Theater

Christopher Nolan's trilogy may very well be remembered as the best Batman films ever, but it will also always be remembered in connection with the shooting in Aurora, CO. In the wake of the tragedy, people should be wise about their theater behavior, as that incident has led to heightened sensitivity about "suspicious activity" in and around movie theaters. A 21-year-old man was arrested in Melbourne, FL, while lurking around a local movie theater, wearing makeup reminiscent of what Heath Ledger wore as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

Police were tipped off after someone noticed Christopher Sides "pacing" outside of the theater prior to entering. He watched The Expendables 2 calmly, but was busted when leaving the theater over an outstanding warrant stemming from a missed court appearance over a previous charge. He was not armed, nor did he resist the arrest.
