. Retired Florida Cop Who Fatally Shot Popcorn-Throwing Man In Movie Theater Acquitted « JO LEE MAGAZINE

HUFFPOST/A retired Florida police captain who fatally shot an unarmed man in a movie theater eight years ago has been acquitted.

Curtis Reeves, 79, was acquitted by a jury on Friday following a nine-day trial in which Reeves testified that he’d feared for his life when he fatally shot 43-year-old Chad Oulson in 2014 while Oulson was on a movie date with his wife.

Reeves said Oulson took out his cellphone during previews for a Tampa screening of the Afghan war movie “Lone Survivor.” Reeves told Oulson to put away his phone, and an argument ensued.
