UPDATE: Man Arrested for Attempting to Bring Loaded Firearm into Epcot, Walt Disney World
A Louisiana Man attempted to bring a loaded firearm into the Epcot theme park on Monday, according to reports.
The weapon was found at the security check point at the entrance to the park, prior to the metal detector area. The man disclosed he had a gun on him prior to being screened. The loaded Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .380 Automatic was found in a case underneath a jacket tied around Michael Langston of Abita Springs, LA.
The deputy wrote in the arrest report that Langston had no plans to declare his weapon to authorities prior to being chosen for screening and planned to bring the loaded weapon into the park if he wasn’t stopped. The man was arrested as he was in possession of a concealed firearm with no permit.
