- Man taken into custody at ‘Magic Kingdom,’ despite forking over $15,000.
A man was arrested for refusing a temperature check at Orlando’s Disney World theme park.
In police body cam footage of the incident, which took place outside The Boathouse restaurant at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa in February, Kelly Sills, 47, is approached by officers who inform him he’s being trespassed for refusing the Covid-19 screening.
“He’s gonna have to go for the day,” an employee tells an officer.
“We are going to escort you out now, sir,” the officer tells Sills, adding, “You are officially being trespassed.”
“I spent $15,000 to come here,” Sills tells the officer.
“You telling me I spent 15 grand,” he argues, before promptly being told to put his hands behind his back and being placed under arrest.
“All you had to do was get temperature checked. That’s it!” someone can be overheard telling him.
Sills reportedly insists, “If I take $15,000 from you, I can’t kick you out,” as he’s being led away. “Bring me to jail for 15 grand, I’m fine… In front of my kids, too, at Disney World.”
