Disneyland's Tower of Terror ride got a bit dicier when a goofy customer slurring his words attacked workers and patrons waiting on line outside. A video showing the customer being repeatedly pepper-sprayed by employees has gone viral. "What are you, drunk?" asks one woman, then: "There are kids here, this is Disneyland!" Patrons joke as the man lies on his back on the ground as a steady stream of spray is shot at his face at the Anaheim amusement park. But he gets back on his feet, wipes his eyes, and punches, kicks and tackles a security guard.

He's finally subdued by a group of workers and patrons as the man moans, "They're gonna kill me." Glenn Horlacher, 53, was arrested and charged with assault and battery. It's not clear what triggered his rage, reports the New York Daily News, though customers speculate it had something to do with vodka. "That was epic," says a Disney fan at the end of the video.
