Nevada man seen repeatedly punching sister, brother-in-law in front of horrified children at Disneyland faces 7 years in prison
ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA: After the video of a violent brawl in Disneyland that took place earlier this month went viral on social media, three people involved in the fight were charged with an array of misdemeanors as well as felonies.
The fight broke out in the middle of Toontown between members of a family on July 8 and the horrific incident was caught on camera.
The shocking video showed two men and a pair of women exchanging punches and shouting at each other in front of crying children.
Spectators gathered around to watch the brawl between the family members unfold. While some whipped out their mobile phones to record the violence, others shielded the eyes of kids they accompanied at the amusement park.
The maximum number of charges were brought against Avery Robinson, 35, while his sister, Andrea Robinson, 40, and her husband, Daman Petrie, 44, faced lesser charges.
Avery, who can be seen wearing a pink shirt in the video, was charged with five felonies for allegedly beating up his girlfriend, domestic battery and assault with a deadly weapon, as well as child abuse and endangerment.
In addition, he was hit with nine misdemeanors. If convicted, he could face up to seven years and four months in jail, NBC News reported.
Avery was seen engaging in the maximum amount of violence.
He slapped his sister and punched his brother-in-law before threatening to kill them.
He then turned his aggression toward his girlfriend after learning that she had hit his mother. He was seen punching the woman in the face multiple times.
He also allegedly tried to hit a Disneyland employee with his car.
"During the fight inside the park, Avery Robinson made several comments, including 'I'm ready to go to jail tonight' and referenced a Southern California gang," the Orange County District Attorney's office said in a statement.
Andrea was facing five misdemeanor charges, including four charges of battery for attacking her brother, his girlfriend, and a Disneyland employee. She also faced a misdemeanor assault charge for attacking her brother's girlfriend. If convicted on all counts, she faced a maximum of two-and-a-half years in jail.
Petrie, who was accused of punching Avery's girlfriend in the face during the melee, was facing one misdemeanor count of battery and a maximum of six months in jail if convicted.
"We do not condone this behavior," Disney said in a statement to Daily Mail.
