ROYAL OAK (WTVB) - The Michigan Department of Corrections is suspending a parole officer after he allegedly made a comment while buying tickets to the new "Batman" movie on Saturday in Royal Oak. The unidentified officer, who supervises parolees in the Macomb County office, reportedly told the employee at the ticket window if he didn't get good seats, quote, "I'm going to shank somebody." The employee of the Emagine Theater told a manager, who called police. Investigators did not charge the man since he apologized for making the comment in light of the Colorado shooting. The MDOC has suspended the officer with pay while they investigate the matter.
