Extreme Disneyland Brawl Under Investigation After Video Reveals Details
A video released on Monday shows an extreme family fight at Disneyland.
Officers from the park and Anaheim Police Department were called to the scene on Saturday to help break up the fight in Mickey’s Toontown, according to Sergeant Daron Wyatt from the Anaheim Police Department. By the time police arrived, the family members had stopped fighting and officers only made a report.
“They were all uncooperative and didn’t want anything done, and we didn’t have the luxury of viewing the video at that time, so we wrote a report,” said Wyatt.
The video that was released to the public shows a woman in white, and a man in pink, arguing. The man is said to be the woman’s brother. The man in pink punches the woman after she spit in his face.
Another man in white, who seems to be the woman’s husband, steps in and tries to stop the brother. The woman in white slightly pushes the stroller that has two children in it to another woman, who might be another family member.
Eventually, a woman on an electric scooter enters the fight but is then knocked to the ground. A woman in a tan-colored top enters the fight as well.
Other family members and bystanders try to break up the fight, while others can be heard yelling to call the police.
Many onlookers try to physically restrain the brother as he started to become more aggressive.
Disney spokeswoman Liz Jaeger made a statement. “Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated,” she said. “Those involved were immediately removed from the premises and turned over to the Anaheim Police Department.”
Local police have launched an investigation. Anaheim city attorneys are working with detectives and may file charges.
