3 Disney cast members beaten by alleged drunken guest, officials say
A Naval Academy graduate and former football player was charged with attacking three Walt Disney World cast members while intoxicated at the Epcot theme park this weekend.
Austin DeVan Hill, 23, of Pensacola was charged with aggravated battery and two counts of battery after he punched two male workers in the head and struck a female with a plastic pipe in an area off-limits to guests, according to an arrest report.
Deputies said Hill appeared to be drunk as he resisted efforts to restrain him, yelled and made incoherent statements. He caused a major disturbance during Epcot’s annual International Food and Wine Festival, which attracts thousands of guests.
At one point, Hill broke free while being escorted to the security office, fell to the concrete and injured his chin and face, the report said.
