A 34-year-old man from Las Vegas man pleaded guilty yesterday and was immediately sentenced to six months in jail for his part in a fight at Disneyland (DL) that was caught on video that went viral. Watch the viral video below:
BEFORE THE FIGHT
Avery Desmond Edwin Robinson pleaded guilty to a felony count of corporal injury on a cohabitant, a count of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, a count of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of criminal threats, five counts of battery and four counts of child abuse and endangerment, all misdemeanours.
Robinson accepted a plea bargain from Orange County Superior Court Judge (OCSCJ) Scott Steiner. The OCSCJ also sentenced Robinson to perform eight hours of community service and participate in a batters’ treatment program.
His sister, Andrea Nicole Robinson1, and her husband, Daman Petrie1.1 failed to show in court and a warrant has been issued for their arrests.

Andrea Robinson is charged with four misdemeanour counts of battery for allegedly attacking her brother, his girlfriend and a DL security guard, and a misdemeanour count of assault on her brother’s girlfriend. If convicted, she faces 2 ½ years in jail if convicted.
Daman Petrie is charged with one count of battery on his brother-in-law’s girlfriend, who was punched in the face during the 5th July brawl, and faces up to six months in jail in convicted, according to prosecutors.
It’s unclear at this time what started the fight, which began in Toontown and sprawled out onto Main Street, U.S.A, but several guests tried to end it, prosecutors said. One guest put Avery Robinson in a chokehold, prosecutors said.
One of the children with the family was carried away from the fight, prosecutors said. When security guards asked the family to leave, there was more violence, prosecutors suggest.
Avery Robinson is accused of attempting to hit a security guard with his vehicle as he drove away and threatening to kill his sister and Petrie as he allegedly simulated having a gun in his hand, prosecutors said.
