Caught On Tape: Belligerent Man Repeatedly Pepper Sprayed During Wild Fight At Disneyland

ANAHEIM (CBS) — A video of an out-of-control 50-something man at Disneyland will surely soon go viral.

The man is repeatedly pepper sprayed and he curses loudly and often during a wild fight outside the Tower of Terror ride.

As wild as the ride might be, witnesses to the fight — involving the man, patrons, security, two bellhops — got their own wild ride Saturday just after 3:30 p.m.

It is not known what led to the wild melee. But at the start of the video, onlookers have already clearly had their fill of the agitated man.

One woman repeatedly screams at the 50-something man, “Do you know you’re at Disneyland? There are kids here! Stop! There are kids here. Does this guy not get that?”

Several patrons subdue the man who is shown punching Disneyland employees and kicking at various park goers. He slurs his words as well prompting many on-lookers to question whether the man is drunk.

In a four-minute profanity laced rant (including by some disgusted patrons) the man can be seen egging on employees to swing at him. He punches at least two park employees, one directly in the face.

After the boisterous man is downed, several park goers applaud and mock him. “He didn’t wind up being so tough, huh?” and another says “Time to go home, sir. Can you believe he’s still going?. Another adds, “look who’s now whimpering like a little baby!” and another man is heard laughing, “I think this guy has been drinking some vodka!”

Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disneyland, told CBS2 and KCAL9: “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.”

Anaheim police tell CBS2 and KCAL9 that they arrested 53-yearold Glenn L. Horlacher. He was booked at the Anaheim police department and issued a citation. It is not clear what charges, if any, Horlacher will face.

The profanity-laced video is linked on youtube under “Disney Tower of Terror Fight” but can only be accessed by youtube users who are over 21.

    I saw them keep pepper spraying him after he got up and was doing nothing but standing there. I thought it looked like the park employees were provoking him to do more. After being sprayed repeatedly when there was no reason to, he finally had enough of the unprovoked attacks on his person and decided the only option left was to stop the park employee that was assaulting him with the pepper spray. Looked like self defence to me.

    • Andrew P.

      Yeah, it does look like they kept spraying him when he was no longer a threat (leaving against the gate & wiping his eyes), and that seemed to have set him off again. I would have been mad at the security guard too for spraying repeatedly. At the same time, I wouldn’t be drunk at Disneyland and gratuitously swearing in front of hundreds of children. And we don’t know the actions of the man leading up to the beginning of the video. Heck, maybe he deserved every bit of that spray.

      • Wild Palms

        I bet this turd ends up suing Disney… was having a diabetic reaction, LOL

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        And he will probably be able to retire…

    • CTW

      If you watch the whole video on youtube, you can see the guy keeps getting up and attacking the security officer, who was the only one there at the time, so he had ever right to keep spraying the guy.

    • Leland

      It’s always good to know idiots have their defenders too.. Unfortunately, it’s usually by other idiots, or defense attorneys. But you don’t appear to have the intellect to be an attorney. I’m a weapons trainer. Use appropriate force until the threat, or problem, is completely neutralized.In my opinion, the guard didn’t take enough action. Pepper spray doesn’t have the same effect on everyone.

      • Leland

        @ sfavdsdfv ‘
        Another person that has no buisness being a weadpons trainer.’

        From someone who shouldn’t be allowed to be on a computer unsupervised. Care to elaborate, or are you having trouble articulating a valid thought, or are you simply a coward? It’s an easy, multiple choice question I could use smaller words for you.

      • CleanFun

        Well said sfavdsdfv. But I seriously doubt he’s even trained himself. Just popping off over the internet.

      • sfavdsdfv

        Another person that has no buisness being a weadpons trainer.

      • Leland

        Really? Is that all you simpletons have to bring to the table? No expertise, or facts? Just another impotent opinion? Pathetic.

      • Rumplestilkskin

        Well said Leland, my sentiments exactly. I would probably given him one swift kick up the family jewels and put him down for good. I also believe the guard was being very controlled in his actions.
        Disney’s guards are trained not to become involved in a scuffle, but to get unruly people to leave or calm down by speaking with them, or at the very least to do as he had done, subdue a combatant with the least physical energy expended. It appeared the guard was being very reserved in his actions.
        It doesn’t make a whit of difference whether a person is having an alcohol related incident or a reaction from drugs whether legal or illegal. If they cannot control themselves, then THEY DO NEED TO BE CONTROLLED, especially where there are children in a family oriented environment !!!

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        Leland…you’ve got the wrong guy. I was simply saying the moron will now more than likely sue and get rich. He desreved everything he got and more. He was arrested and im sure faces a ton of charges. Starting with being a moron!

      • Erika71

        I agree with you. Pepper spray may not be enough to subdue a person. I have not see the video yet, but I will.

    • Orange County

      Bruce Smith, you’re just as much an idiot as that drunk guy. I’ll bet you been kicked out of many establishments yourself.

  • carl

    I wish I was there

    • jack

      yeah, you would have made things worse.

      • NoDemocracyAnymore

        FidelityBraveryIntegrity Maybe you could get a job attacking, threatening, bullying, discrediting, and diverting attention for the federal government. Oh wait, you already have one. Maybe you could hire a good lawyer that can get you off for treason dipchit how’s that sound?

      • NoDemocracyAnymore

        After the coup and cover up I wouldn’t believe much of the news.

        Osama Obama Biden (Bi)n La(den)
        One coincidence? Two coincidences?
        The odds of the president’s and vice president’s last names combined having the same 9 consecutive letters as the name of the most wanted terrorist is over 5 trillion to 1.

        With the media in on the last election, it’s why Sarah Palin was added to the McCain ticket. They had no intention of winning. Why do you think Republicans gained so many seats in the last midterm? Sarah and McCain were part of a coup. Obama was turned after he won the election to take down those who make up the “organized community” that he spoke about.

        The biggest cover up in history starts with Sarah Palin’s real role in our last election.

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        Yo NoDemocracy….maybe you should get a job with the CIA with that code breaking ability of yours…..NOT!!!

    • Peter

      They have another video of what happened after this video shut down, the cops finally arrive see video at

    • Danny

      Too Bad Captain Truth wasnt there, from Obama’s Truth Team.. Then sht would of really hit the fan.

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity AKA Okami

        @ Tom…….BAAAAAAA!

      • Exposing the Fascsit


        Joseph Stalin had something similar except it was called the Glavlit. Americans are really stupid; they have to be the dumbest people on earth. At least in the former Soviet Union and East Germany the people KNEW they were being lied to and spoon feed propaganda. I wonder how long it will take Americans to figure it out, or if they will at all.

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        @ Exposing…you chucklehead…what does that have to do with the story??

    • Shawn McDonald

      FidelityBraveryIntegrity another government poster covering up the truth

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        That some moron got drunk and started trouble at Disney???How the hell is that a government cover up? I would really like to understand. Or was it maybe something the government put in the air around him that made him go nuts??? Do tell.

      • CommonCents

        ‘NoDemocracyAnymore’ & ‘Exposing the Fascist’ are both CORRECT!!

        FidelityBraveryIntegrity is just a Zionist SHILL or Marxist ‘useful idiot’.

        Lots of subliminal mind-control techniques and PsyOps at Disney.

        Observe the covert sexuality and symbolism in their movies.

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        @ CommonNoSense…..seriously get a life. You little cry wolf about everything that happens in this world are the reason when and if something ever does go down….no one will believe it until its to late. this was just a drunk dude that got what he deserved! Nothing more.

      • TOM SERVO

        FidelityBraveryIntegrity is right. This story has nothing to do with the “spam” posts he was questioning. Anyone attacking him for saying so is ignorant . . . Sheesh. I thought the wolves were smarter than that. The sheep costume only works when you act like one of the sheep.

  • Watch Belligerent Disneyland Guest Get Pepper-Sprayed Repeatedly

    […] If you thought screaming kids might be the worst part of Disneyland, watch this clip of a wildly belligerent 50-something man punching and cursing at employees and getting pepper-sprayed repeatedly. […]

  • I guess NGFM won't be able to go to Disneyland anymore by Falhawk - TribalWar Forums

    […] […]

  • Bill

    I have just one word to sum up this story. BORING!

    • Ryder

      Not that boring. I thought it was a good story though I felt bad for the drunk. ha ha nice post danny, captian truth. I wish captain truth would of been there too. I followed your link that was funny. though alot of people in Cali probably will be joining truth team.

    • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

      The story itself is boring…bet it wasnt boring being there though….

  • L. Kirby

    The man may have been having a diabetic problem. They can sometimes act as if they are drunk and what they need is medication. Find out before you beat him half to death.

    • Dalton

      They subdued him. Obviously, you’ve never worked in a bar. Then, you’d know the definition of “beat him half to death.”

      • punchy

        you’re supposed to be polite and say please first Dalton.

  • hazelll

    “security cast member”?
    They “cast” people as security members, rather than hiring real security?

    • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

      All Disney employees are called cast members.

  • coriolana

    The stormtroopers at the Rodent Empires should take over for the TSA.

  • barber5

    Undoubtedly a Santorum reporter

  • Rich

    All Disney Park Employees are referred to as “Cast Members”, regardless of their position.

    For those who didn’t know.

  • floyd sampson

    It appeared as an assault on the man, with the unnecessary use of pepper spray, repeatedly used and then again when he was on the ground. I hope he sues disneyland and gets a big judgment. The gaul of disneyland spraying their customers assures me that my family will never again attend any of their parks.

    • Leland

      I’m guessing your family have already been banned from numerous establishments.

      • John

        Leland, you are a moron. What kind of facts are you referring to? That you are a weapons trainer?! Congratulations, you really achieved something in life, now have a Budweiser and clean the gun that you keep under your pillow.
        All the video showed was an idiot fighting another without any of the reason why. I’ve seen way too many incidents in my life where the so called security personnel are the cause of the problems, so you can stop commenting, as all you do is trying to provoke others who are not as narrow minded as you are.

      • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

        No sir…again…you got the wrong guy.

    • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

      Grow a pair Floyd….obviously you didnt watch what happened…go hug a tree.

    • Orange County

      floyd sampson, I take it, you were kicked out at Disneyland for doing the same thing that drunk guy did. I’m sure Disneyland will be blessed by your absence. Get a life, you idiot.

  • mmercir

    I did the one one Orlando.

    you would need a frikin tazer tazer to get me back on that manical device.

    Fun as all get out for the children’s… Heart attack machine. for the grown. Never forget the wife screaming “we’re all gonna die” all the way down.

  • lol

    Note how his profanity and violence made those cursing his profanity righteously curse profanely and get violent.

    • FidelityBraveryIntegrity

      Dude….two words…ENGLISH CLASS!!!!!!



        Dude…two words…PuS$y dumbf**k

      • TOM SERVO

        Punctuation only works if you have something meaningful to say. “lol” should keep skipping English class – it makes it easier to avoid what he has written.

    It was probably because of that stupid, line cutting, fastpass. I quit going to Disney because of all the tension caused by it.

  • walter12

    If the man was crazy and if he was going to attack someone, then he should have been shot down like a rapid dog.

    • artemis133

      A rapid dog? How fast was he going?

    • PatTheRat

      But as the video shows, he was none of your “ifs”. Why waste time with hypotheticals when the facts here clearly show the opposite.

  • ProMouse

    The 53 year old ought to know how to act in public…oh yeah, wait, I’m in America…

      Burt, this site is a magnet for tea party conspiracy theorists and history revisionists.

    Looks like a clear case of racism to me. he didnt get enough cookies as a child and disney was hoarding all theirs. I call for cookie wealth redistribution immediately
