MASSILLON, Ohio, July 3 (UPI) -- A woman was arrested in Ohio after allegedly attacking another woman who questioned her boyfriend about having his young children at the film "Magic Mike."

Massillon police said the 36-year-old woman, whose name was not released, allegedly slapped another woman and pulled her to the ground by her hair at the Great Escape Movie Theatre during a showing of "Magic Mike," The (Massilon) Independent reported Tuesday.


Police said the incident began when the suspect's boyfriend's two young daughters got out of the Disney film "Brave" about 10 minutes before the end of "Magic Mike," which is rated R and stars Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey as male strippers.

"The dad didn't feel comfortable having them go outside and sit in the lobby by themselves, so he brought them into the theater and basically made them sit backward to the movie screen so they couldn't see anything," Sgt. Jason McCune said.

"The victim went down and confronted him about having his daughters in the theater," he said.

The suspect then intervened in the argument, leading to her arrest.

The woman pleaded not guilty to the assault charge Monday and was released on bond.
