The viral video showing a massive brawl between family members at Disneyland earlier this month has resulted in criminal charges for the three adults involved in the fight that could put everyone behind bars.
KTLA reports that two men and a woman are facing a number of charges after a family dispute turned violent at Disneyland.

The brawl—which took place in the middle of Mickey’s Toontown on July 5th and was witnessed by other park guests, including children—was caught on video that quickly went viral.
Just as the video starts, someone can be heard talking about disrespecting family, and you see a woman spit on a guy wearing a pink shirt, and chaos quickly ensued.
Things got so bad that an older woman with a mobility scooter (later revealed to be pink shirt’s mother) was knocked to the ground and random people started grabbing the children with the family to take them to safety.
35-year-old Avery Desmond-Edwinn Robinson (the guy in the pink shirt) of Las Vegas was charged with five felonies and nine misdemeanors for allegedly attacking his sister, brother-in-law and girlfriend, and also endangering his own child and three other children, a news release from the Orange County District Attorney’s office said.
Robinson also allegedly threatened to kill a relative when they drove out of the parking lot after being kicked out, and a Disneyland cast member accused him of assaulting them with his car.
Prosecutors said Robinson’s felony charges include domestic battery, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of criminal threats.
His misdemeanor charges include multiple counts of battery, and child abuse and endangerment.
Robinson’s older sister, 40-year-old Andrea Nicole Robinson (the woman in the white tank top) of Compton, was charged with five misdemeanors, including four counts of battery and one count of assault.
Her husband, 44-year-old Daman Petrie (the guy in the white shirt) also of Compton was charged with one misdemeanor count of battery.
The video shows everyone raining punches all over each other and hair being pulled, with four people primarily involved, including Avery Robinson’s girlfriend, who wasn’t charged with anything and appears to be a victim, according to the footage.
Other family members and bystanders tried to break the fight up as other parkgoers called for help. By the time security responded, the fight had already ended and Robinson was being held down by a group of people.
When Anaheim PD officers first interviewed the family, they denied the fight even took place, but the viral video prompted authorities to investigate further before turning the case over to the DA’s office.
At one point in the footage, Avery can be heard referencing a Southern California gang and shouting “I’m ready to go to jail tonight!” And it looks like that’s exactly where he’ll be going.
If convicted as charged, Robinson faces a maximum possible sentence of seven years and four months in state prison.
His sister, Andrea Robinson, faces a maximum of two-and-a-half years in jail if she’s convicted as charged, while his brother-in-law, Daman Petrie, could face up to six months in jail.
“The Orange County District Attorney’s Office does not tolerate domestic violence or child endangerment anywhere,” DA Todd Spitzer said.
