Animal Kingdom

A Walt Disney World guest tried walking into the Animal Kingdom theme park on Sunday with a loaded gun in his backpack according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Nathan Polit, of Boynton Beach, was stopped at the entrance security point at Disney’s Animal Kingdom around 9:30 a.m. on December 15th.

According to the report he put the 9mm gun from his car to his back the night before and forgot to put it back into his vehicle before entering the park. He does not have a concealed carry permit and the gun was fully loaded when he tried to walk into the no bag line at the Animal Kingdom.

The arrest report shows he was charged with carrying a concealed firearm and he was issued a trespass warning from all Walt Disney World properties.

A Disney spokesperson noted that Polit never made it beyond the security checkpoint.

Great Job!
