In a video taken by one of the many people who witnessed the wild, lengthy confrontation, a group of men and women, reportedly all related, got into a literal knock-down, drag-out fight in Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland on Saturday that included men and women exchanging punches and slaps, an older woman who was in a motorized chair being knocked to the ground, and one of the women at the center of the feud getting dropped by one of the men — all while children looked on. It took security over three minutes to intervene.
Details surrounding the video (below), which was recorded by one of Disneyland’s many guests who saw the shocking inter-family feud, was reported by KTLA 5 News.
“Anaheim police on Monday said they’re continuing their investigation of a violent fight involving members of the same family visiting Disneyland after video of the brawl surfaced online,” the outlet reported Monday. “The footage, recorded at Mickey’s Toontown on Saturday, shows two men and two women throwing punches at each other near at least three young children, two of them in a stroller.”
As the video shows, the confrontation begins between a man in a red shirt and woman in a white shirt, then quickly escalates to include a man in a white shirt who was pushing a stroller, another woman, wearing a tan shirt, and a woman in a motorized chair who gets caught up in the turmoil.
Though multiple people attempt to calm down the feuding family members, the confrontation continues for over three minutes before park security finally arrives on the scene and intervenes.
KTLA reports that the Anaheim Police Department confirmed Monday that those involved in the confrontation were all members of the same family and that they were initially uncooperative when officers arrived. The family members were immediately escorted from the park when security was able to get control of the situation.
“A report was taken,” the Police Department said. “There was no video at the time. Now that we have video, the investigation can continue.”
Disney has also issued a statement. “We do not condone this behavior,” the company said in a cookie cutter response reported by KTLA.
