    Three adults were charged in connection with a family fight that was caught on camera earlier this month at Disneyland's Toontown.

    Some witnesses tried to break up the fight and others looked on in amazement during the July 6 brawl. Video of the fight, which was shared on social media, showed family members throwing punches, hair-pulling and yelling at each other.

    The violence even spilled outside the park and into the parking structure as family members left, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, which charged Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson, 35, with five felony counts and nine misdemeanors.

    Robinson, of Las Vegas, is accused of attacking his sister, brother-in-law and girlfriend, endangering his child and three other children who were with the family, and threatening to kill members of his family as he drove out of the Anaheim theme park, the district attorney said in a statement. Robinson also allegedly assaulted a Disneyland employee with his car after the family was escorted from the park by Disneyland security.
