Police: South Florida Man On LSD, Charged With Tackling Disney World Guard

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) - A South Florida man who admitted to being on LSD was arrested after authorities said he tackled a Walt Disney World security guard.

James Arvid is pleading not guilty to a charge of battery on a uniformed security guard, and he's asked for a jury trial.

An arrest report says Arvid tackled the uniformed guard from behind and put him into a headlock while the guard was making his rounds at Animal Kingdom last month.
