A woman has been trespassed from Disney World after she was accused of pushing several senior citizens in the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train queue, located at Magic Kingdom Park.
Eboni McFarley, 31, received the ban from the Park and was arrested after two elderly Guests, who were visiting from Maryland, said McFarely shoved past them in line for the popular roller coaster in order to meet up with the rest of her party.
Woman Shoves Senior Citizens
According to court records, McFarley, who was with four children, pushed past the two Maryland women, ages 73 and 64, while in line for the popular Magic Kingdom roller coaster, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, to join the rest of her party.
The incident happened back in February, but the sheriff’s department just released the arrest report, per WDWNT.
The Guests visiting from Maryland claim they would not let McFarley pass as they told her she had to wait in line like everybody else, which is when McFarley “became agitated” and pushed her way past the two women, per the arrest report.
The arrest report also stated that McFarley scratched the 73-year-old woman’s right arm with her fingernails, causing her to bleed, as she pushed her way past the two elderly women.
The report also stated that the two Maryland women “were adamant that there was nothing haphazard or incidental about the contact Eboni made with them.” They also said they were willing to testify in court and prosecute McFarley; however, it seems McFarley will not face any punishment.
Others Witnessed The Incident
Other people who were waiting in line witnessed the altercation, some of whom also admitted to being pushed by McFarley, including a large family who was visiting Disney World from Illinois.
The family told police they witnessed what happened between the two Maryland women and McFarley, and even mentioned another Guest, a 52-year-old woman, confronted McFarley, telling her not to touch anyone. The 52-year-old Guest also had photos on her phone that showed portions of the altercation.
That is when McFarley got physical, again, and pushed a 23-year-old Illinois woman into a wall, and proceeded to push past three male Guests, who varied in ages (17, 22, and 72), per the arrest report.
The family from Illinois said no one was injured in the Walt Disney World altercation and said they did not want to press charges.
McFarley Speaks Out
McFarley spoke to police after the incident took place, claiming she was the victim in the situation and had done nothing wrong.
According to the deputy who investigated the incident, “They maintained that they felt they were being victimized and profiled because they are African-(American). Eboni maintained she did not batter or push anyone. She did express a concern that her children were touched during the incident, however, my investigation did not reveal any information to support this.” He also noted in the arrest report that he did not interview the children.
After their initial investigation, law enforcement came to the conclusion that McFarley had committed battery, and she was arrested and taken to Orange County jail. She was then transferred into the custody of the Orange County Corrections Department.
A battery charge was filed initially, but the assistant state attorney’s office then determined that the case was “not suitable for prosecution,” according to Orange Circuit Court records.
