A man was arrested on Sunday for beating up three Disney employees at the Epcot Center Theme Park in Orlando, Florida, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, and reported by NBC News.
Deputies were called to the Epcot area of the theme park after receiving reports that a man was hitting an employee with a metal pipe, according to the arrest report.
Austin De Van Hill, 24, will be charged with aggravated battery, battery and felony battery. He was released from the jail on bail that was set at $3,750, according to a jail official.
According to the deputies, Hill was drunk and was being held down on the ground by Disney park employees when the authorities arrived on the scene. Hill was bleeding from the hands, wrists and knees, according to the Sheriff's office.
Deputies attempted to take him to the park security office when he began "yelling and continuing to cause a disturbance," according to his arrest report.
"Hill's resistive actions made it possible for him to break free of our control for a short period," the Orange County Sheriff's Office told NBC News. "Hill's subsequent movements caused him to fall to the concrete and injure his chin and jaw."
He was then taken to Celebration Hospital, where he received stitches on the chin for the injuries that he sustained during his fall.
The first employee to be punched in the face was Michael Connelly, deputies said of the outbreak of violence in the family theme park. Connelly was also punched in the head and was transported to Celebration Hospital as well, where he received treatment for a large cut across his forehead, according to the report.
Timothy Beltley was also punched in the face, and had complaints of neck pain, requiring him to also be taken to Celebration Hospital in a non-emergency capacity, according to the Sheriff's office.
The other employee to be injured was Jessica Brown, who was hit in the face and neck with a plastic PVC pipe, according to authorities. She suffered from small swelling and didn't go to the hospital.
It's unknown whether Hill has an attorney.
