Adults, teens arrested in Disney brawl
Willoughby Mariano | Sentinel Staff Writer
Posted May 22, 2007
Three teens and two adults were arrested at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom after deputies said they spat on guests, cursed and brawled with an Orange County deputy, according to a report released Monday.
The arrests took place at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday, after Rose Dipietro, 20, Brian Guilfoil, 19, and three teens, all of Shirley, N.Y., a town on Long Island, were detained by Disney security for being unruly and possibly drunk, according to a sheriff's report.
The group threatened the security officers, who called for help from sheriff's deputies. When one deputy tried to intercede, Guilfoil pushed the deputy while his companions rushed into the fray, the report states.
Security guards and deputies rushed to the deputy's aid, and the deputy used his stun gun against a 17-year-old girl.. The five suspected brawlers were arrested for felony battery on a law enforcement officer and other related charges.
Dipietro and Guilfoil were booked into Orange County Jail, where they were released Monday afternoon on $2,300 bail each.
The teens -- girls 17 and 16 and a 14-year-old boy -- were taken to the county's juvenile detention facility.
