David Waiters is facing the possibility of up to five years in prison if convicted of signalling fire in a crowded Regal Cinemas Theater in Abingdon.
CBS Baltimore reports Waiters had an explanation for his behavior Monday night - he was angry because "The Avengers" was being shown with closed captioning.
A distraction, to be sure. Frustrating, yes. Did he ever think of asking for his money back? Apparently not.
Pulling the fire alarm seems like the sort of thing Captain America would frown upon.
