Armed moviegoer gets probation for CIA badge

Posted: Updated:

A man who carried a loaded gun and wore body armor while seeing a movie near Flint has been sentenced to probation for wearing a phony CIA identification badge.

Cassidy Delavergne appeared in federal court in Flint Wednesday afternoon, where he earlier pleaded guilty to having the badge.

He had a permit to carry a concealed weapon and wasn't charged with a gun crime.

FBI spokesman Simon Shaykhet says police were called to the Trillium Theater in Grand Blanc Township near Flint in July, 2013 after someone noticed the vest and gun. Delavergne was watching the film "Red 2" when police arrived. Upon further investigation, more than 100 additional rounds were found in the trunk of Delavergne's vehicle parked outside.

According to court documents, he wore the body armor and brought the gun into the theater because he did not want to leave it in his vehicle during the movie.

A court filing says Delavergne told an agent he displayed the phony ID to minimize concerns about his gun. Theater management has said he wasn't threatening anyone.

"Red 2" is an action comedy involving a retired agent and his team of operatives.
