Ringing phone, wrung neck in Ballard theater

We know you’ve imagined doing this, but remember, it is a crime.

According to a piece in the Ballard News-Tribune, a guy in the Majestic Bay Theatre in Ballard didn’t turn his phone off during a showing on Nov. 21 and when it rang, another patron told him to shut it off, according to the Seattle police report on the incident.

A short time later, the guy’s phone rang again. As you might imagine, words were exchanged and things went downhill from there, culminating in the choking incident, according to the newspaper’s story.
