Officers “responded to Disneyland to assist Disney security with a guest who removed his clothes and was naked in or near the ‘It’s a Small World’ attraction,” said Anaheim Police Department spokesperson Jonathan McClintock.
“Upon officers’ arrival, they arrested a 26-year-old man for indecent exposure and for being under the influence of a controlled substance,” continued the police official.
“We noticed he started climbing onto the different parts of the ride, and we noticed that he was undressed,” said a witness.
“He just looked out of it,” she continued.
Adding, “He just didn’t look like he knew where he was. He looked worried. My friends and I had seen him, and it looked like he was going to jump on us.”
The witness said that a Disney employee “got [the streaker] to sit down for a minute,” recalled the witness.
However, “after that he continued walking in the opposite direction, behind us. Once he got to a different part of the ride, he ended up walking into the water and started drinking the water, and ran off toward the entrance of the ride,” described the eyewitness.
Videos of the incident surfaced on social media, showing the man’s erratic behavior.
