Intoxicated Man Arrested at Walt Disney World Urinated on Police Officer’s Leg

Occasionally there are guests that have too much to drink while at Walt Disney World and cause problems while on property.  20 year old, Joseph Murphy, caused problems at Disney Springs in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day.  He was  initially arrested for disorderly intoxication while on Disney property.  Other charges began to stack up as he resisted arrest, beat his head on the police car and proceeded to urinate on the floor and officer’s leg.


The complete list of charges include: battery on a police officer, resisting an officer without violence, disorderly intoxication and indecent exposure of sexual organs.  While in the police car, he attempted to choke himself and beat his head against the middle partition.  All the while he was yelling, “police brutality” during his moments of self inflicted injury.  It was when he arrived at Orange County jail that he began to urinate on the floor and shift his aim to urinate on the officer’s leg and yelling profanities at all of the officers, including ones about Donald Trump.

We have not found information yet on bail status or updates since his arrest.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
