MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police say no one was hurt when a loaded gun fell out of a man’s pants pocket in a movie theater and fired.

Memphis police said 63-year-old George Gholson was arrested and charged Tuesday with reckless endangerment and failing to follow a posted “no-weapons” notice.

Police said Gholson took a .38-caliber, two-shot Derringer into a movie theater in east Memphis. The gun, which was loaded with one bullet, fell out of his pants pocket and fired the round.

Police said none of the 18 people in the theater were hit. An off-duty police officer who was in the theater at the time took Gholson into custody.

The theater had posted a notice prohibiting weapons inside the building. Online court records do not show if Gholson has a lawyer.
