Man arrested for attack at Disney California Adventure Park

Monday, February 20, 2012

A 53-year-old man was arrested after allegedly going on a cursing tirade and attacking employees at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim.

Authorities arrested Glenn Horlacher for allegedly starting a fight outside the Tower of Terror ride on Saturday afternoon.

The melee was caught on video and posted on YouTube. Authorities had to pepper-spray the man after he started punching employees and kicking park visitors.

Bystanders helped security hold Horlacher down.

He was booked for assault and battery and was later released.

It's unknown what prompted the angry tirade.

"Our security cast member was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for the injuries he sustained and then released. We appreciate the actions of the guests who came to his aid during this uncharacteristic incident," said Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disney.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
