The North Ridgeville man accused of bringing a backpack full of weapons into the Crocker Park movie theater pleaded guilty to two counts of carrying a concealed weapon.

Scott A. Smith will face trial on Wednesday for an additional count of having weapons while under disability.

Smith remains on house arrest.

Smith was arrested on August 4, 2012 while seated in a showing of the movie Dark Knight Rises.

An off-duty officer and movie theater manager confronted Smith because he was acting suspicious. Smith opened his backpack without a fight, and revealed a Glock 9mm handgun and three knives. Smith does not have a concealed carry permit.

Police say Smith was seated in the last row of the theater with his back against the wall. That’s what police call a tactical position.
