Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – On Monday, May 29th, 2017, around 11:30pm, Clarksville Police Officer Jennifer Renken responded to a call at the movie theater in the 1800 block of Tiny Town Road, about a man who was irate because the theater’s concession stand was closed and they would not sell him popcorn.

He had retrieved an empty popcorn container from the trash can and demanded it be refilled. After the staff refused to fill the container, he threw it at the employee, knocked over a display in the lobby, and then ran off into the theater.
