Nathan Polit was arrested Sunday for possessing a firearm at the security checkpoint at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Polit claims he forgot to remove the 9 mm pistol from his backpack after taking it out of his car the night before.
Polit was stopped at the security checkpoint at the Animal Kingdom at about 9:30 A.M. Sunday morning after attempting to go through the no bag line. This led deputies to believe he did not intend to declare the weapon, which was found to contain eight target practice rounds.
The man was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, which the affidavit says he does not have a permit for. Polit was also issued a trespass warning from all of Walt Disney World.
