(Newser) – A South Florida man faces disorderly conduct charges after a disturbance at a theater showing The Dark Knight Rises. Miami Beach police say more than 100 moviegoers fled early yesterday after David Escamillo yelled "This is it!" during the film. Witnesses say they saw Escamillo leave the theater and return wearing a pair of black gloves. He was detained by movie patrons until police arrived.
