It’s only been a few days since a violent fight broke out at Disneyland’s Toontown, but even after a video of the fight went viral online, the family that was allegedly involved denies it ever happened.

Police are currently investigating a violent fight that broke out over the weekend involving a family visiting Mickey’s Toontown, a land in Disneyland that caters to the entertainment of toddlers and young children. The video went viral shortly after it was posted on July 7 and shows a man punching a woman in the face after she spat on him during an argument. The video, taken by a bystander, shows the entire fight as well as other bystanders in the surrounding area. Police report that the family was “uncooperative” with police when authorities were called into the park after the fight took place. According to Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, because there was no video documentation of the fight available at the time police arrived at the theme park, no arrests were immediately made. Now, the family involved is denying that the fight ever took place at all.

The Anaheim Police Department shared the recent development in the investigation on Twitter:

Since the fight occurred, we have learned that all of the people involved were members of the same family, and even though there is video proof of the altercation, those involved are denying that the fight happened. This week, the Anaheim police presented the case to the Orange County District Attorney’s office for review and prosecution.

When asked if fights like this one commonly occur at Disneyland, the police department said, “it does happen when families get together in the heat and get irritated with each other.”

Since the fight occurred over this past weekend, Disneyland has issued a public statement via Twitter, sharing that any type of violence at Disneyland is “inexcusable and will not be tolerated.”

According to Fox5 San Diego, a spokesman for the Anaheim city attorney’s office shared that decision on whether to file charges in the case will come after police finish their investigation.

    Well the Anaheim PD need to get the footage of who ever took it. It came out the next morning if not that night. They need to do their job and investigate further.

      I can only imagine what their poor children are subjected to when the doors are closed – what they hear and what they see and how they are treated. These people clearly have no emotional control and should be ashamed of themselves for subjecting other Disney guests to such an erratic display of behavior. They should all be arrested for this episode and the only “investigation” needed should be done by social services in deciding whether or not these people should have children in their homes. Shame on Anaheim PD if they don’t pursue them.

    If my kids were anywhere near that disgusting display of stupidity I would sue Disney for all I could. Where was security? When the Barney Fife squad finally showed it was like a dog and pony show with nobody doing anything to stop the morons.

      Hey Don’t blame Disney. Blame the family for fighting in a place they’re not supposed to. Disney didn’t initiate the fight, the family did.

      And you would be laughed out of court!
      Don’t want to see it or have your kids witness it, then walk away.

      Are you serious? That statement might be dumber than the people fighting.

      What kind a liberal dumb ass would blame Disney for the actions of these morons!? Biggest issue we face today is the HUGE lack of personal responsibility. I can’t wait to hear the spin about how it isn’t their fault etc. Probably society’s fault for the racial tension or some BS like that. Disney should sue THEM for disrupting their business you tool!

    Sue Disney because some idiots don’t know how to behave in public?! That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard…almost as ridiculous as people fighting, in Disneyland, having it recorded and THEN saying it never happened (gaslight, much?)

      How did the president get in this, just like a snowflake to make every bad thing that has ever happened somehow relate to the president just move on already you can vote next year I don’t care about politics right now this is ridiculous. The nitwits fighting in public will hopefully get taken care of from a legal standpoint and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out the video came from another family member.

    If the Disney employees got involved, Disney could be sued by the family or the Disney employee could be killed or hurt during the confusion of the fight. Then the family of the employee would sue that family and Disney. The ONLY option to avoid an employee getting hurt, killed or sued is to move guests away from the fight, contact police, and wait.

      Anyone not under a rock could see how disgustingly violent their altercation became. We ALL still remember something called facts, right? Sadly, even on video our President gets away clean from his own repugnant behavior by denying it ever happened. Why shouldn’t this family lie, deny it, and get away from it? There are child-like
      TWEETS and political videos calling facts FAKE NEWS. More power to this family for being so Presidential in their cunning manipulation of the facts.

    There was no fighting going on here. Just a fuktard baby Huey beating on women like normal. The only real fighting was when that moron got choked out.

    The Anaheim PD needs to get off their butts and really stop talking about what they are going to do- only if yet another serious event of domestic violence occurs like this one last week. Disney and Anaheim PD–you already know that you have every legal right to file charges and prosecute these dangerous people. You should be taking action and showing your guest that you care as much about the guest as you do your reputation! What’s more concerning is how Disneyland nor the PD were able to intervene and control the crisis for over 15 minutes thus failing to properly protect hundreds of innocent families and children present. Furthermore, it seems that the Anaheim PD and Disneyland are working hand in hand to keep this matter demonstrating a clear lack of security at the Disney Parks under wraps. Sad to see Disney and the Anaheim PD have their priories backwards. Disney will not see my family long time visitor anytime soon given your poor handling of security.
