An Italian doctor on vacation at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park was arrested on Saturday for allegedly kicking his 3-year old son in the face. Dario Napolitano, 41, was arguing with his family when witnesses say they saw him kick his son in the face and heard the son begin screaming from his stroller. Disney security immediately called the police, as well as a Disney interpreter due to a language barrier. The arrest report said the 3-year-old was treated for a cut below his eye, an abrasion above his eyebrow, and swelling of the entire area. Napolitano stated that he is a doctor in Italy and that he hit his son because he was misbehaving. He was charged with child abuse, and later posted bond to be released from the Orange County Jail.
