Brian Sherman, a 51-year-old married man registered in the state of Florida as a sex offender, was detained by authorities at the Disney amusement park in Orlando, on charges of fingering an actress characterized as the princess " Ariel " while posing with him in a photo.
The events occurred this Saturday in the Magic Kingdom section of the park when the subject and his wife approached the actress to pose in a photo. The victim told authorities that Sherman was "very excited" and that he kept repeating that she was his "favorite" character.
Arrested for harassment at Disney, the woman agreed to have her photo taken and placed herself in the middle of the couple. Sherman then put his arm around her and started to lower her body until finally reaching with his hand for the woman's bra to grab it under the breast, according to the Orange County sheriff's office.
The actress's companions noticed her discomfort and that something was happening. She tried to wriggle out of the harassment by suggesting they pose differently, but the guy continued until he held onto his victim's "tight clothes" with two fingers, like a clothespin.
The incident lasted a few seconds, explains CNN, even so, a photographer made a challenge to be able to identify the guy before the authorities of the package and be able to capture him.
When Sherman left, the woman burst into tears and trembled at the humiliation. His arrest occurred five hours later and he was booked into an Orange County police station, where he was subsequently released.
