Scott A. Smith Indicted on Weapons Charges

Scott A. Smith Indicted on Weapons Charges

Scott A. Smith was indicted on weapons charges Monday after being arrested with a loaded gun, ammunition and four knives at an Aug. 4 showing of The Dark Knight Rises at  in .

The current charges listed at the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas docket are a fourth-degree felony carrying concealed weapons (for the gun found on him), a misdemeanor carrying concealed weapon (for the four knives found on him) and a third-degree felony for having weapons under disability (for the gun on him as well as the ones taken from his home).

The prosecution is basing the weapons under disability charge on the claim that Smith has some kind of substance abuse issue.

Smith has been in jail — first in Westlake, then at the Cuyahoga County Jail since Aug. 7 — since his arrest. He is being held on $250,000 bond.

Smith was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing at 3 p.m. Tuesday, but that has been cancelled. According to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, his arraignment is set for 8:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 27.

Smith's attorney, Matthew Bruce, said Monday that he would be meeting with Smith in the next day or two to go over the charges, make sure Smith understood them, and discuss their options.

"I anticipate pleading not guilty to all charges (at the arraignment)," Bruce said.
