ANAHEIM, Calif. – A violent brawl caught on camera at Disneyland this week has gone viral, showing a heated scrap between park-going parents.
These tourists certainly know how to make a good impression for their kids.
The fight looks to begin during a heated argument between an adult couple and another adult man outside Goofy’s Playhouse. They can be heard yelling, cursing at each other, and eventually the woman audibly spits on the man’s face.
That’s when he loses it.
He begins swinging, batting hands with the woman. Then the two men square up as the woman pushes her young children away from the chaos in a stroller, then enters back.
Despite some people trying to stop the fight, it only escalated.
“I’m ready to go to jail tonight!” screamed the man who threw the first punch.
“I don’t give a f–k if I’m on video!”
During the fight neither of the men held back, striking each other and others, including women, in the face and body.
Watch the video that was captured at the scene below.
After the fight appeared to be over and the man in the red shirt had walked away, park-goers said that it started back up again when he came back to the area and began smacking one of the women in the face.
Others had to intervene to stop the fight. Four park-goers allegedly jumped in, with one of them reportedly choking out the main offender.
Jason Blair, a high school football coach, was one of the men who jumped in to help end the violence.
“I didn’t understand why people were recording and not helping,” Blair said, noting how he told the man in red “to back off” before bringing him down to the ground with the others.
“Without a doubt I would do it again,” Blair said in an interview with KFOX. “When something is not right, you have to jump in.”

Those involved in the fight cleared out of the area but were later removed from the park by security.
Now that police have obtained the video, they are able to begin their investigation to see if charges are warranted against the brawlers.

“Now that we have the video, detectives will be following up to see if any criminal charges can be filed,” Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt told the Los Angeles Times.
Disneyland wants to make sure this doesn’t happen again, and issued a warning to future park attendees.
“Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated,” Disney said in a statement.
According to police, “all parties were from the same family and were uncooperative.”
“A report was taken,” officials said. “There was no video at the time. Now that we have video, the investigation can continue.”
