Last month we reported the news that a Disney Security Cast Member was spat on by a guest at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for failing to wear a facemask.
At the time the identity of the man was unknown, however today the Orlando Sentinel has reported that a 51-year-old Palm Beach man has been found and charged with trespassing and battery for spitting on the Cast Member.
According to the initinal report Kelly McKin was attempting to walk into the Convention Center at the Contemporary when the Cast Member told him it was closed.
She asked him to put on his mask. He promised he would do so once he went inside the building.
The security guard reminded him masks were required at all times on Disney property.
“The man told her to leave him alone, and took a step towards her and spit on her,” the arrest report said. “The spit did not make direct contact but some saliva did hit her on her left forehead.”
The guard, who did not have a radio on her at the time, went to get backup while the man disappeared inside the resort.
“That was the last he was seen,” the arrest report said.
The Cast Member was worried she might have been exposed to COVID-19 and notified management.
The next day on Feb. 6th, Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call from Disney after the man had been spotted on surveillance footage.
McKin was arrested and charged with trespassing and battery against the Cast Member.
Kelly McKin adamantly denied spitting on the Security Cast Member last month at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, according to the arrest report.
