More news has emerged regarding the circumstances surrounding last weekend’s incident, when Disney security teams and police ejected World Cup-winning U.S. national team soccer star Alex Morgan from Disney World’s Epcot Center.
Officials alleged that Morgan was “highly impaired,” implying that she was drunk when the player was confronted security at Epcot’s U.K. pub on the evening of Sunday, September 30.
Morgan was soon ejected from the park after a belligerent display in front of Disney staffers, visitors, and members of the Orange County Sheriffs.
Even after being forced to exit the park, police say Morgan continued to berate the officers.
However, details from a new report show police claiming that Morgan was “impaired and verbally aggressive,” according to TMZ.
Police also alleged that Morgan threatened them with her personal relationship with the Orlando Police SWAT team.
“She appeared to be highly impaired. Deputy Johnson heard Ms. Morgan make a loud verbal statement that she knows the Orlando SWAT team,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office report says.
Morgan was not the only player ejected from the park that evening. Major League Soccer players Donald Toia and Giles Barnes of Orlando City SC were also escorted off the property.
Morgan later apologized on social media, saying, “I want to apologize for my actions that occurred over the weekend. I will learn from this (and) make sure it does not happen again.” Morgan added the hashtag #liveandlearn.
