Brutal Family Fight Filmed At Disneyland, But No Arrests Made Yet
A violent scene took place at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, when a family got into an altercation that quickly escalated. The YouTube video, filmed by an onlooker, shows two men and two women throwing punches at each other as a crying toddler is seen running around the brawl, and an older woman being knocked out of her scooter to the ground.
Warning: This video contains graphic violence and offensive language.
It is unclear why the family fight took place, but the video will help law enforcement in their investigation.
According to Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, the family members were not cooperative and denied the fight ever happened. Since the video had not surfaced at the time, no one was arrested.
APD is aware of a video going viral of a fight inside @Disneyland on Saturday. We responded to investigate. All parties were from the same family and were uncooperative. A report was taken. There was no video at the time. Now that we have video, the investigation can continue— Anaheim PD (@AnaheimPD) July 8, 2019
Not a joke. There has to be an investigation. The parties involved all denied anything occurred and we were not there to witness it. The videos that were not available at the moment make things clear and the case has been presented to prosecutors— Anaheim PD (@AnaheimPD) July 10, 2019
Some are questioning Disneyland’s security for taking 3 minutes to respond to the violent scene.
I just got sent a video of a bad fight at Disneyland yesterday and honestly I'm pretty disappointed security. It took them awhile to get there a bunch of disney dads had to jump in and stop everything. And When they showed up it didn't really look like they did much tbh.— Jessica Reyes (@outreyjessly) July 8, 2019

Disneyland officials gave their statement: “Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated. Disneyland Resort security responded appropriately within minutes and immediately called Anaheim Police Department for assistance. Those involved were removed from the premises and turned over to Anaheim P.D.”
