Nothing brings a family together like a day at "The Happiest Place on Earth," Disneyland, USA. The rides, the struggling actors in giant foam suits, the violent punches and hair-pulling as you beat the crap out of your sister in front of Mickey’s Toontown.
A violent family brawl at Disneyland that was captured on video broke out Saturday among family members as horrified parkgoers rushed their children past the scuffle and bystanders tried to separate the persons engaged in the altercation.
Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt told The Los Angeles Times that the fight broke out in front of Mickey's Toontown, adding that the family involved was “uncooperative” with authorities.
Have a gander for yourself, but caution, the video content, although accompanied by uplifting theme park music, is graphic. Pay special attention to the terrified children who cry uncontrollably while their idiot parents are smacking each other around.
The video, posted on YouTube on Sunday, begins with an argument between a man and a woman pushing a stroller with two young girls in front of Goofy’s Playhouse. The man, who is wearing a red shirt, takes the first swing at the woman after she spits in his face, the video shows.
Another man steps in, and the two men start throwing punches at one another, the video shows. Children are heard crying in the background as the adults continued to scuffle. Over the course of nearly five minutes, several members of the family become involved in the fight, the video shows.
Some passersby gathered to watch the melee. Others hurried past the brawl with their children.
A woman riding a motorized scooter, who was also part of the group, intervened to try to stop the scuffle but was knocked to the ground. Two people helped her up as the fight between other members of the family continued.
“I’m ready to go to jail tonight,” the man wearing the red shirt yells in the video.
Less than a minute later, the man is seen in the video punching one of the women he thought hit his mother. The woman is knocked to the ground and the man drags her by her hair across the pavement in the video. Several bystanders intervene to pull him off, the video shows.
Disneyland security arrives shortly after and breaks up the fight, the video shows. The individuals involved in the scuffle were immediately removed from the park, said Liz Jaeger, a spokeswoman for the Disneyland Resort.
