Fist Fight Breaks Out at Universal Orlando Resort Security Checkpoint on New Year’s Eve


A fist fight near the security checkpoint at Universal Orlando Resort was caught on camera and posted to social media last night.

The video seemed to originate with Facebook user Logan Euler, but it quickly made the rounds on other social media platforms.

It’s unclear what started the brawl, who was involved or if charges will be filed, but the initial post claimed that at least one officer “got punched.”

An onlooker can be overheard saying “I’m freaking out!”

According to WDW News Today, crowd levels at Universal Orlando Resort have been extremely high this week. This can be evidenced by many videos popping up on social media.

On both December 29th and December 30th, Universal Orlando announced it had reached capacity on Twitter.

On December 30th, Universal hit capacity minutes after opening at 8:10 a.m.

Of course the news of the park hitting capacity raises questions about what Universal Orlando’s capacity limit currently is during the pandemic, to which they seemingly will not make public at this time.
