A man allegedly shoved another moviegoer during a film at the Bethesda Row Cinema Christmas Day, according to Montgomery County Police.
The fight erupted after two men got in a verbal dispute over talking during the movie, according to Montgomery County Police spokeswoman Officer Janelle Smith.
A 27-year-old man shoved the victim, a 31-year-old man, Smith said.
Police responded to the theater shortly before 11 p.m. Dec. 25 for the report of an assault, Smith said.
The man wasn’t arrested or formally charged, but a police report was written, Smith said.
The victim could decide to press assault charges against the suspect, Smith said. It wasn’t clear whether or not the man had been charged.
A movie theater representative had no comment on the incident and referred a call from Patch to a Landmark spokeswoman, who didn't immediately return a call for comment.
