2 people arrested in Halloween Horror Nights attacks at Universal
William Nunnally, Karla Rondan Diaz charged with battery
ORLANDO, Fla. – Two people have been arrested for attacks on Universal Orlando team members at Halloween Horror Nights, police said.
One of the employees told police he was working as a scare actor in "The Walking Dead House." According to an arrest affidavit, William Nunnally, 28, punched the actor in the face.
The actor told police that Nunnally turned and looked directly at him after he performed his scare. The actor said he did not make contact with any guest and Nunnally turned, faced him, clinched his fist and punched him in the face, according to police.
Police said the actor needed medical treatment and was treated at the scene.
Nunnally told police he might have "accidentally hit" an actor but denied punching, according to the arrest affidavit.
Another victim told police that he was working as a scare actor for the event. According to an arrest affidavit, the actor said Karla Rondan Diaz, 32, approached him as he stood on stilts for his position.
The actor told police Rondan Diaz kicked the stilts twice, which almost caused him to fall to the ground. He told her to stop in an attempt to prevent her from kicking and causing him to fall.
Nunnally and Rondan Diaz face battery charges.
These latest arrests come after WKMG-TV reported about two scare actors quitting Halloween Horror Nights for being attacked. Universal said it has zero tolerance for these kinds of incidents, the station said.
