Tigger won't face charges; But did he get his job back?
Written by Robert Niles
The Disney World cast member who was accused of whapping a kid on the head while performing as Tigger will not be charged with a crime.Tweet
You might remember the incident from last month. A Disney World visitor shot a video of Tigger apparently hitting his teenage son. Many viewers saw the scene differently, though, claiming that the kid might have provoked Tigger, potentially endangering the cast member.
The Florida state attorney's office announced this week that it had reviewed the incident and would not file charges. What has not been announced though, is what Disney's done to the employee. Disney had said that he would be suspended without pay during the investigation.
