[Plot Thickens!] The Disneyland Brawl Just Got A Lot More Dramatic As Family Faces Years In Prison For Magic Meltdown
The most magical place in the world is proving that when it comes to your petty drama, Disneyland isn’t having it.
It was just revealed that the three adults who were involved in a dramatic family physical dispute at Disneyland earlier this month could face years in prison.
In case you missed it, the three adults in question were involved in a brutal fight captured on video a few weeks ago at Disneyland. Footage of the event showed a man in a red shirt throwing punches at several different women and men. Now the man in red, identified as Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, has been charged with five felonies and nine misdemeanors according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
In short, Disney is ready to deliver a one-two punch to violence that threatens peace at its park.
According to the police, Avery allegedly attacked his sister, brother-in-law, and girlfriend at the park.
In doing so, police say, he endangered his child and three other children who were at Disneyland with the family. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that upon leaving the park, he also allegedly threatened to kill members of his family and attempted to assault a Disneyland employee with his car.
The charges do not stop with Avery however.
Avery’s sister, Andrea Nicole Robinson, 40, was charged with five misdemeanors.
Those charges include four misdemeanor charges of battery which is related to her attack on Avery and his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Andrea’s husband Daman Petrie, 44, is faced with one misdemeanor count of battery. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office says that he is being accused of assaulting Avery’s girlfriend by punching her in the face.
If convicted, Avery faces a maximum of seven years and fourth months in state prison. Andrea could get up to two-and-a-half years. while her husband Petrie could face a maximum of six months in jail.
According to KTLA, Avery pled not guilty to all the charges against him. Whether or not his sister and her husband have done the same has yet to be revealed.
If you’ve seen the video, you’ve probably only had the emotional bandwidth to ask this question.
Someone insulted someone’s mother, another mother was thrown to the ground, and it seems like everyone is just going at each other, regardless of gender or relation. It was a sad, and confusing, scene to witness.
The narrative of the story is that they are related, hence the fact that they stayed together despite the fighting.
It doesn’t seem like it’s two separate families defending their own. They seem to be related to each other, which makes the fight exceptionally sad.
If you’re still confused, fear not, the Internet has provided a flow chart.
None of this is confirmed by the family or authorities. We’re all in this mess together. From here on out, the term “we” will be used to describe the collective Internet “we.” We think White Shirt girl, Red Shirt and Black Shirt Girl are all siblings. Their mom is the Mama in the wheelchair.
White Shirt Girl dissed Red Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl).
Red Shirt Guy clearly has the biggest temper of them all, and resorted to physically attacking (what we think is) his sister. Her boyfriend (White Shirt Guy) stepped in to defend her. Then they start dancing around like they’re in a boxing ring. Black Shirt girl tries to intervene to get them to stop fighting. Then White Shirt guy just punches Tan Shirt Girl (Red Shirt’s girlfriend) straight in the nose. Now it’s really getting heated between Red Shirt Guy and White Shirt Guy.
While trying to intervene, Mama gets knocked down in the fight.
Now Red Shirt Guy is yelling, “I’m ready to go to jail tonight. I’m ready to go to jail.” Then Red Shirt Guy sees White Shirt Guy and starts yelling “fired on my motherf***ing b****, put your hands around my b****!” White Shirt Guy starts retreating, but Red Shirt Guy pulls White Shirt Guy’s girlfriend (also wearing a white shirt) by her hair.
Things start to calm down until Black Shirt Girl tells Red Shirt Guy that his girlfriend (Tan Shirt Girl) hit his Mama.
He turns to his girlfriend saying, “You hit my mama?” Tan shirt tries to explain that it was an accident (it was), but he punches her straight in the face. Then he starts violently pounding on her on the ground while a group of people tries to lift him off her. He pulls her hair along with him. Red Shirt Guy is finally restrained in a chokehold, and then the security finally shows up.
This whole time, the only Disney employee intervening is an older custodian.
Our hearts dropped for fear this older man would be violently attacked but he thankfully wasn’t. There are memes on memes of other Disney employees in costume just standing around.
Other folks are getting philosophical about the many bystanders who did nothing.
Magic Mountain is side-eyeing this whole brawl so hard right now.
Meanwhile, Universal fans are taking the moment to show appreciation for their theme park of choice.
For all the shade amusement park goers throw at each other, we still don’t understand how this mega-fight happened in Toontown.
This one media outlet’s narration has truly tickled The Internet.
This reporter describes the fight with vivid detail. Rewatching the fight with narration that sounds like “but then, he slapped the daylights out of her,” is truly rewarding if you’re into that kind of thing.
The family maintains it never happened.
The family was all released once they all told park authorities that the fight never happened. Once the video footage came out, however, their questionable loyalty didn’t matter. Orange County prosecutors are currently reviewing the video to determine whether criminal charges will be filed. If they decide to file felony charges, the county district attorney’s office will also assess misdemeanor counts. If they don’t find any grounds for felony charges, the Anaheim city attorney would take over to pursue misdemeanor charges.
