A 21-year-old man was arrested today in Melbourne after a concerned movie-goer spotted him outside a theater on the 1800 block of Hibiscus Boulevard with makeup similar to that of the well-known villain The Joker.

The man, identified as Christopher Sides, was pacing outside the movie theater smoking a cigarette with black, white and red makeup and red-dyed hair said Melbourne Police Department Spokesman Sheridan Shelley.

“He made no threats, he had no weapons, he created no disturbance,” Shelley said.

Although Sides’ appearance may have startled movie-goers still remembering the mass shooting in the Colorado movie theater where a man in similar makeup was accused of shooting 12 people to death, because Sides did not attempt to cause a disturbance, his makeup had nothing to do with his arrest.

He was brought in on an outstanding warrant related to a missed court date for a misdemeanor offense.

When police arrived, Sides, dressed in a leather jacket and boots was seen talking to a theater manager at about 10:30 a.m.. He bought a ticket to see “The Expendables 2” and said he was just there to see the movie.
