This time it's in Connecticut, where prominent attorney Sung-Ho Hwang, the president-elect of the New Haven County Bar Association was carrying his concealed weapon into a showing of The Dark Knight Rises. Police then entered the theater and asked all of the patrons to raise their hands and file out of the theater.
This is where the stories differ.
The police department says that Hwang refused to reply to commands and remained seated while talking on his phone. The officers ultimately approached with weapons drawn and took him into custody by force.
According to Hwang's lawyer, Hugh Keefe, ‘‘He’s doing everything by the book. He has a permit to carry. He’s out at a movie theater. Suddenly people are pointing guns at him". According to Keefe police were not going to arrest Hwang as he was carrying legally but New Haven Chief of Police Dean M. Esserman ordered the arrest.
‘‘When baseless breach of peace and interfering charges are brought against people that have a right to carry, it really threatens our constitutional right to bear arms,’’ Hwang said.
