The family was "uncooperative" when police responded to the park, and there was no video available at the time, so officers did not make any arrests, Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

The Anaheim Police Department said that child endangerment charges are being considered against members of a family that were caught on a viral video in a brutal fight in Disneyland's Toontown. Over the course of five minutes a number of family members join the brawl. A verbal spat into an all-out brawl when a woman in a white shirt spit in a man's face wearing a red shirt.

He said detectives were made aware of the video the next day after it racked up over 3 million views on YouTube and have since pursued a criminal case.

One part of the video appears to show a man striking a woman several times.

Another man steps in and the two males start throwing punches at each other. Children can be heard crying at some points during the fracas. After shouting at each other, the woman spits at the man, who hits her.

As you can see in the clip, a woman in a white tank top, a man in a white shirt and a tall man in a pink shirt have congregated around a mobility scooter with a second woman sat in it.

Some bystanders, including a park cleaning attendant, try to intervene, but can't stop the chaos. Another man standing beside the woman jumps in immediately, and soon the two men are squaring off with their fists up, ready to fight. Moments later, the video showed that same man knocks down another woman, accusing her of hitting his mother.

Then he continues to slap the woman in braids, swinging her around until she falls to the ground.

Pink shirt man comes back and starts slapping the white-shirted woman in the face, leaving her flat out on the floor.

"I don't know what their protocols are as far as security, but yeah, it did take a long time", Blair said.

Liz Jaeger, a spokeswoman for the Disneyland Resort, later told reporters "Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated". "Those involved have been instantly removed from the premises and turned over to the Anaheim Police Department".
