On Saturday afternoon, recent Naval Academy graduate, Austin DeVan Hill, 23 has been accused of attacking and assaulting 3 cast members at Disney World's EPCOT theme Park in Orlando. It is unclear at this time if Mickey Mouse, Mini Mouse, or any of the gang were involved in the altercation. Reportedly, Hill trespassed his way into a backstage office in the East Innovations attraction area during the park's International Food and Wine Festival. At which point, Hill attacked cast member, Michael Connelly, by sucker punching him in the face causing a large gash to his forehead. Cast member, Timothy Beltley attempted to breakup the fight, only to get punched by Hill in the process. Apparently, Hill was trying to steal a cargo work cart. Next, cast member, Jessica Brown was also caught in the cross-fire of the altercation. Hill picked up a PVC pipe (commonly found in vehicle engines) and used it as a weapon against Brown. Even though PVC pipes are typically no bigger than the palm of one's hand, she was left with bruises to her face and neck.
According to witnesses and local police, Hill was believed to be intoxicated at the time of the incident. The two male victims were taken to the hospital and the female victim was treated on scene.
