 A man who allegedly attacked workers at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim -- a scene that was caught on tape and posted on the Internet -- was arrested on charges of battery and assault, authorities said.

Glenn Horlacher, 53, appeared to attack indiscriminately and fought with at least one security guard in the Saturday scuffle, said Sgt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department.

Police were called about 3:30 p.m. to assist security personnel at the theme park, Dunn said. When they arrived "several guests were holding down the man," he said.

Horlacher was booked at the Anaheim police station and later released on a citation, he said.

One security guard was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries, Dunn said.

It was unclear what triggered the incident, but Dunn said it appeared to be between the security guard and the suspect. He added that at no time were guests at the park believed to have been in any particular danger.

Disney officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
