New York, Feb 22 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Latvian man actually shot another man because he complained about how he was eating his popcorn at the cinema.
During the screening of the 2010 hit movie ‘Black Swan’ in a theater, a 27-year-old man was reportedly eating his popcorn too loudly. That got on the nerves of some of the fellow audience members including a 42-year-old man.

According to the police, they are currently holding the man and he would be arraigned before the court as soon as investigation is completed.
Local newspapers in Latvia reports that the incident happened at a cinema in the country’s capital, Riga. The shooting took place on Saturday.
The movie featuring Natalie Portman has been a huge hit since it was released in 2010. The movie has already received an Oscar nomination and it is expected to win some awards when the event comes off this weekend.
Fox Searchlight could not be contacted to comment on the incident.
