'Would-be Rambos' Try To Sneak Into Theater; 7 Arrested In Clash

September 03, 1985| From United Press International

GLOUCESTER, England — About 50 "would-be Rambos" went on a rampage after police caught them trying to sneak into the Sylvester Stallone movie, authorities said Sunday.

Two officers were hurt, a police car was damaged and seven youths were arrested in the brawl about 100 miles west of London.

Police said someone opened fire doors to let the youngsters into a theater where the film "Rambo: First Blood Part II" was being shown. When the gang refused to leave, police were called.

The movie was interrupted as about 50 gate-crashers battled a score of policemen who struggled for half an hour to boot them out of the theater.
