FBI: Man at Mich. theater had armor, gun, CIA ID

GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — The FBI says a man was arrested at a Michigan movie theater wearing body armor and carrying a gun.

Cassidy Delavergne wasn’t charged with crimes related to the gun or 34 rounds of ammunition. But he was charged Wednesday with possessing a phony Central Intelligence Agency identification card.

FBI spokesman Simon Shaykhet says police were called to the Trillium Theater in Grand Blanc Township near Flint on Tuesday night after someone noticed the vest and gun. Delavergne was watching a movie when police arrived.

Shaykhet declined to say whether agents believe Delavergne planned to use his handgun.

A court filing says Delavergne told an agent he displayed the phony ID to minimize concerns about his gun. Delavergne claimed to have a concealed weapon permit.

He’s in custody.
