A dream vacation ended in a nightmare for a man who refused to cooperate with the coronavirus sanitation protocols implemented at Disney World.

Kelly Sills, a 47-year-old man from Baton Rouge Louisiana, ended up in the Orange County, Florida jail after confronting officers in the "happiest place on Earth."

It all happened on February 13 when Sills circumvented the resort's body temperature control for guests. Authorities confronted him, he refused to make amends for his mistake and ended up handcuffed.

"I paid $ 15,000 ... They can't force me if I paid $ 15,000," the subject shouted when he ended up in police custody, as seen in the officers' body cameras, which were released this week.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Sills said that he did not realize when he evaded the temperature control and inadvertently entered through an exit. According to Orange County court documents, he pleaded not guilty to breaking and entering.

Before being taken out of the park in handcuffs, Sills repented and asked the police to take his temperature. "They will do it in jail," replied the officer.

This is not the first incident of a tourist who refuses to follow the sanitation guidelines in the park, who has expressed his conviction to maintain the protocols at all costs.

Sills admitted that he was in a bad mood that day and paid dearly, as he spent the first night of a five-day trip under arrest.

Covid protocols remain a problem in 2021

Despite the fact that it has been more than a year since the covid prevention measures began to be implemented throughout the country, there are still people who refuse to follow them.

The reasons are different depending on the person, many are bothered by the authorities telling them what to do, while others simply say that it bothers them.

I consider that even though you have personal reasons for not following certain measures in your personal space, you must still follow the rules of a private space even if you are paying for a service.

Although it is a problem for many. The correct operation of the measures helped us to reopen the country little by little, and to be able to enjoy certain places again.

Do you think the authorities acted correctly with this man or did they exaggerate?
