A man was arrested Sunday after allegedly attacking workers at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim.

On video of the encounter, the man is seen flailing at the employee and struggling to keep his balance outside the Tower of Terror ride. Another employee, dressed in the Tower of Terror bellhop uniform, can be seen asking the crowd to "back up."

Police responded to the park at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday to find patrons holding the man down on the ground.

The suspect was identified as 53-year-old Glenn Horlacher. He was arrested on charges of battery and assault, and released from jail Saturday night.

A security guard was treated for minor injuries.

"Our security cast member was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for the injuries he sustained and then released," according to a statement released by the park. "We appreciate the actions of the guests who came to his aid during this uncharacteristic incident."

Investigators were attempting to determine what prompted the altercation, which park officials described as a "very unusual ocurrence."

They would not, however, quanitfy how often park visitors are arrested or detained.
