EPIC Theatres of St. Augustine evacuated in weapon scare; it was only a man with a sandwich


Posted: December 27, 2012 - 4:37pm

A report of a man tucking a shotgun under his coat Thursday afternoon at EPIC Theatres of St. Augustine turned out to be nothing more than a moviegoer taking a sandwich into the theater.

The short-lived scare was still enough to force St. Johns County Sheriff’s deputies to temporarily evacuate the theater off State Road 207 as they searched for the suspect. Deputies responded because a customer called to report that a man in the theater parking lot had stuffed a shotgun into his coat before entering the building.

Cpl. Catherine Payne of the Sheriff’s Office was on scene and said that deputies detained and questioned the man suspected of having a gun. But they quickly determined that he was just “a guy with a sandwich,” and he was let back into the theater with the rest of the other patrons.

“We’re definitely glad it ended without incident,” Payne said.

1. Uh, "reiGns."

OK, OK, I'll take off the pedant's cap now. It's just a mistake a lot of otherwise literate DUers make, you aren't being singled out.

"Reins" are what you hold when you're riding a horse.

"Reigns" means holds all the power, as in kings, aristocrats, and stinkin' thinkin' like paranoia.

The paranoia in the OP is nothing new. I remember 20 or so years ago, somebody in Bethel, AK was arrested for packing a salami under his coat.
