Yong Hyun Kim Charged With Felony Assault After Slapping Child At Movie Theater
Posted: 05/22/2012 4:55 pm Updated: 05/22/2012 5:11 pm

Yong Hyun Kim, a 21-year-old Washington State resident, has been charged with felony assault after slapping a 10-year-old boy at a local movie theater.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the incident occurred at an AMC Theater in King County back on April 11; Kim's slap caused the boy to lose a tooth.

Per the Associated Press, the boy and his friends were being rowdy during a showing of "Titanic 3-D" -- talking, throwing popcorn and even bumping into Kim as they ran through the aisle. After Kim told them to quiet down, they mocked him; Kim then hit the boy, unaware that he was only 10.

Later, in court, a police detective relayed that Kim thought the boy "was a grown man."

If convicted of second-degree felony assault, Kim could face up to a few months in jail.

This isn't the first time a movie theater has been the source of an incident between patrons. In 2010, Regal Cinemas was sued for not having enough security following the fatal shooting death in the parking lot of one of the chain's Atlanta theaters.

Additionally, the owner of the Muvico Theater in Illinois came under fire after demanding the arrest of a young woman who was caught filming "The Twilight Saga: New Moon"; the woman countered sued because she claimed the theater owner was overaggressive in demanding her arrest so that he could collect $500 in reward money offered by the Motion Picture Association of America.

Sounds like it was more like 'Fight Club'.

A more detailed story and description can be found in the Christian Science Monitor:

In Dictator it was funny when he slaps and kicks the snotty kid in the food store. In real ife: not so much. When I was a kid it seemed to me that adults had carte blanche to smack you if you misbehaved. I never remember anyone ever caring if a kid got smacked for being a jerk. Now... evry child is the Baby Jesus incarnate. What's the world coming to when you can't smack a mouthy 10 year old? Just kidding.
