Man with concealed gun had to leave Salina theater

SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A man with a legal concealed weapon was asked to leave a Salina movie theater after other customers complained.

Salina police Capt. Mike Sweeney says officers went to the Central Mall movie theater Tuesday when the man became upset when he was asked to leave. The theater reports other customers asked for their money back before the man was asked to leave.

Sweeney says the man had a concealed carry permit and was upset the theater had no signs banning guns. The man cooperated when officers explained that businesses are allowed to refuse service to anyone.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1qGvua9- ) an officer saw the outline of a small handgun in a holster under the man's shirt.

Sweeney says the man didn't threaten anyone and no charges are being pursued.
