Police: Maine man took loaded gun to Batman movie
A trooper stopped Timothy Courtois, 49, for doing 112 mph on the Maine Turnpike in York Sunday morning, police said. Motorists had reported seeing a speeding Mustang with its flashers on.
Upon pulling him over, police found an assault rifle, four handguns and several boxes of ammunition, they said. Also found inside his car were recent news clippings of the mass shooting at the Colorado movie theater, police said.
"We don't know what his true intentions were," said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety. "Based on the arsenal that was confiscated, we brought in our counterparts from the FBI and ATF to assist with the investigation."
