Worker doused with Gas by Co-Worker at Animal Kingdom

This one falls into the news of the weird category for sure. A employee of a subcontractor at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom was arrested and charged with assault last night. The pair was working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom around 3AM cleaning one of the Rhino or Hippo ponds (there are conflicting accounts) on the Kilimanjaro Safari attraction when an the incident happened. One worker poured gasoline over the other and then threatened him with a lighter. When that didn’t work, the accused allegedly assaulted the victim with a shovel.

According to a story on WFTV the wife of the accused says it was all a misunderstanding. I’m sure. (via the Orlando Sentinel) – photo courtesy limowreck666.
