Death Due to Moviehouse Texting: Cop guns down man for texting- claims Popcorn assault "self- defense"!

Movie texters beware.....
The shooting occurred inside The Grove 16 theater in Wesley Chapel at around 1:30 p.m
A 71-year-old retired Tampa police captain Curtis Reeves Jr., is in custody after allegedly shooting and killing 43-year-old Chad Oulsen and injuring his wife over a texting dispute during a Mark Wahlberg war movie. He was arraigned on a second-degree murder charge Tuesday in a Florida court.The retired cop's  lawyer said in court that Reeves "had every right to defend himself" after the man hurled a bag of popcorn at him.

Curtis Reeves, 71, appeared for a bond hearing Tuesday in a Florida court. A judge ordered him held without bail.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s OfficeReeves shot Chad Oulson with a .380-calber handgun after a verbal and physical confrontation. Chad was pronounced dead at a hospital while his wife, Nichole, was treated for a gunshot wound to her hand.
Chad Oulson, seen here with his wife, was fatally shot in the chest after he allegedly
refused to stop sending text messages in the theater. His wife was shot in the hand.

Reeves and his wife were sitting behind the Oulsons as the preview trailers were rolling just before the showing of Lone Survivor,” the Mark Wahlberg movie about a failed 2007 Navy Seal raid in Afghanistan. Reeves asked Chad several times to stop, to no avail. He then left the theater to complain to the theater's management before returning to his seat. The two got into a verbal altercation upon his return which shifted to a physical confrontation. It was not clear if the physical confrontation involved the Popcorn "assault" mentioned by the lawyer.

Then the suspect, Reeves, pulled out a gun. Only one shot was fired. Nichole was wounded in the hand when she grabbed her husband as Reeves pulled the trigger.

Reeves retired as a captain from the Tampa Police Department in 1993. He helped set up the department's first SWAT team.
