Tod Austin Ingram, 52, of Cross Lanes is being charged with a felony of making terroristic threats.

Witnesses told deputies that Ingram was being loud, disruptive and arguing with people during a movie at the Great Escape Theater in Nitro, W.Va.

When deputies searched Ingram, no guns were found.

Deputies say when Ingram was arrested and escorted from the theater, customers broke out into applause.
