Minn. Man Accused Of Disrupting ‘Rango’ Screening

BARABOO, Wis. (AP) — A Minnesota man is in jail after he allegedly drank alcohol, swore and urinated at a matinee screening of the animated film “Rango” in Wisconsin.

Forty-nine-year-old Timothy Elvester of Aitkin, Minn., is charged with vandalism and disorderly conduct.

A police officer was called Saturday afternoon to the Desert Star Cinema in Lake Delton. The theater manager told the officer a patron was “very intoxicated” and drinking liquor from a pint bottle.

The Baraboo News Republic reports the manager said he had received complaints about the man swearing during the movie. Staff told police Elvester had urinated in the theater and had fallen on the stairs.

The movie was stopped so officers could pull Elvester from the theater, which was about 90 percent full.

Elvester is being held on a $100 cash bond.

    90 days in detox might be the answer. Who in their right mind, intoxicated or not, would head to an animated flick to act like this? 90 days
