Deputies: Florida man arrested after spitting on Disney employee who asked him to put mask on
ORLANDO, Fla. - A man was arrested after spitting on a Walt Disney World security guard who asked him to put his mask on, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.
An arrest affidavit from the Sheriff's Office said that 51-year-old Kelly Dewayne McKin from Palm Beach was at Disney's Contemporary Resort on February 5th when he was asked to put a mask on by a security guard. The affidavit said that he refused to and then spit on the employee. He walked away and contact with him was lost before backup could arrive.
The next day, they said that an Orange County sheriff's deputy responded to Disney because the theme park company wanted to issue a trespass warning. Upon arrival, the deputy recognized the man that needed to be trespassed as the same suspect from the spitting incident at Disney's Contemporary Resort.
