Three Women Arrested After Allegedly Assaulting a Man During Fifty Shades of Grey Screening
A Glasgow showing of the steamy film ended in chaos when a scuffle broke out in the theater
Three women were arrested outside a Glasgow theater for allegedly attacking a man after a Valentine’s Day evening showing of the racy film.
Police were called to the Grosvenor Cinema at about 8 p.m., where they arrested the women, ages 31, 38 and 51, for alleged disorder offenses and alleged assault, BBC News reports.
Witnesses on the scene also told the Telegraph that the disturbance started when the victim asked the women to quiet down during the movie.
Other moviegoers claimed that the man had been hit in the head with a glass bottle and that blood was wiped from the seats before the next screening. But police and cinema representatives dismissed the claims.
“Despite press reports, nobody was glassed and a wine bottle was not used as a weapon. Those involved did not require hospital attention,” a spokeswoman for the movie theater told the Telegraph.
The three women were not the only ones making a scene that night.
“There were also several incredibly drunk women vomiting in the aisle and corridor and several complaints from the other screen about drunk and rowdy folk,” moviegoer Michael Bolton told the Telegraph.
Police Scotland did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
