A high school football coach from Texas who got caught up in the viral Disneyland brawl over the weekend has come forward to describe the mayhem, including how the main attacker got choked out by a parkgoer — and then woke up and tried scrapping again.
“When the man regained consciousness, he kept asking, ‘Who choked me out?’” explained Jason Blair, of El Paso.
He told KFOX14 that the individual — seen on video wearing a red shirt and repeatedly punching women — wanted to fight the person who made him pass out.
Blair was one of four guests who jumped in and subdued the man after watching him pummel at least two female parkgoers.
“I didn’t understand why people were recording and not helping,” Blair said, noting how he told the man in red “to back off” before bringing him down to the ground with the others.
“Without a doubt I would do it again,” Blair told KFOX. “When something is not right you have to jump in.”
Blair, who is the head coach at El Paso’s Hanks High School, said the man in red had attacked a woman in a motorized wheelchair before setting upon another female. He was caught on video fighting with a male guest, as well.
“I’m ready to go to jail tonight,” the man in red can be heard saying. “I don’t give a f–k!”
Him and the others involved in the melee — which went down in Disneyland’s Toontown on Saturday — all walked away without being arrested. They were later removed from the park by Disney security.
“Now that we have the video, detectives will be following up to see if any criminal charges can be filed,” Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt told the Los Angeles Times.
It’s unclear what sparked the brawl, only that there was a verbal confrontation leading up to it.
“Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated,” Disney said in a statement.
According to police officials, “all parties were from the same family and were uncooperative.”
“A report was taken” cops said. “There was no video at the time. Now that we have video, the investigation can continue.”
