The case occurred on February 13. Kelly Sills, a resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was approached by security at a restaurant in the complex, refused to leave and shouted.
Security guards said he would be charged with trespassing. According to the arrest report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Sills replied, already handcuffed: “I paid $ 15,000 (the equivalent of $ 84,600). You can’t accuse me of trespassing if I paid US $ 15k “.
He pleaded not guilty to the trespassing charge, according to Orange County court records.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Sills said he would have “happily” allowed his temperature to be checked, but he got confused and used one of the exit routes to enter the site.
The man blamed security officials at the park for not handling the situation well and compared them to Nazis and mobsters, but he also admitted that he was “a little moody” that day.
While the police escorted Sills, he changed his mind, wanting to do a temperature test. “Can you take my temperature before you kick me out, please?“. “They will do this in prison,” replied a police officer.
He was arrested on the first night of the five-day trip with his family. “Covid is a very serious thing, but so are my holidays with my family,” he said.
According to the Orlando Sentinel newspaper, this is not the first time that visitors refuse to comply with sanitary protocols as a way of preventing the new coronavirus at Disney World – employees of the complex have already been pushed around, heard screams and even been spat out for asking customers to follow the imposed rules.
