  CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio man arrested with a loaded gun, ammunition and knives at a showing of the latest Batman movie has been indicted on three weapons counts.
 
     A Cleveland grand jury returned the indictment Monday against 37-year-old Scott A. Smith, of North Ridgeville, on two concealed weapon counts and one of having a weapon under disability, alleged drug dependency.
 
     Bond was set earlier at $250,000. Arraignment was scheduled for Aug. 27.
 
     Smith's attorney says his client had the weapons for protection in case someone tried to copy the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 dead. Defense attorney Matthew Bruce said Tuesday that Smith would challenge the dependency contention and ask for lower bond.
 
     Smith was arrested an Aug. 4 showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Westlake.
