However how nice the hotel is, some Guests can ruin the fun for everyone. Cabana Bay Beach Resort reportedly had to close down one of their pools because of an altercation.

According to individuals involved, the alleged altercation happened between groups who were part of a group staying at Universal’s Cabana Bay for this year’s Pop Warner Super Bowl and National Cheer & Dance Championships. At this time, it’s unclear why and how many were involved in the altercation. Right now, it is also unclear if anyone was arrested.

One person in a Facebook group said one lifeguard (presumably on duty) was “taken out in a wheelchair.” You can read the comment she posted in full below:

I MYSELF AM GOING TO CONTACT POP WARNER. THOSE PARENTS AND CHEERLEADERS WHO WE’RE FIGHTING SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF THEIR GROUP. I’M SURE CABANA BAY HAS NAME SINCE THE ONE LIFE GUARD WAS TAKEN OUT IN A WHEELCHAIR.

It’s important to remember that this hasn’t been confirmed and the exact details of the altercation have not been released.

What do you think of this altercation?
