Should you get a felony charge for theater hopping?

Rabbit Hopping
[adrotate banner=”1″]Have you ever theater hopped? I totally have (unless you are a cop, in which case I totally did not! ::wink::) and so have most people I know. But did you know you could be facing a long term in the slammer for theater hopping? Because that’s what’s facing one Indiana couple. Lendsey and Delilha Harbin reportedly bought tickets to go see Snitch, and when it was over, allegedly then snuck into the showing of Warm Bodies, where they were confronted by police and charged with felony theft.

The big question is, is this really worth the police’s time enforcing a $6.75 theater price skipping (and holy crap, $6.75!?! I want that theater near me! It’s close to double that here at night.) It’s a good thing Indiana has no more crime, that’s all I’m saying. Of course, there are probably some MPAA/RIAA types who view theater-hopping on the same level as file sharing. All I’m saying is maybe a trespassing warning was all that was needed.
