Three arrested in separate 'Dark Knight' incidents

Police across the country have arrested at least three people accused of making threats during or after watching the new Batman movie days after a fatal theater shooting in Colorado.

In Maine, state police pulled over a man who said he was on his way to shoot a former employer one day after watching "The Dark Knight Rises." Timothy Courtois was arrested Sunday after a police search found weapons and news clippings of the massacre in Aurora, Colo.

In Arizona, sheriff's officials say a confrontation with an intoxicated man during a Friday showing caused 50 people to flee the theater.

A man in Southern California was accused of causing panic when the movie didn't start. Witnesses say the man alluded to the shooting and asked whether anyone had a gun.
