Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt told Heavy that no charges were filed at the time of the incident due to the family being uncooperative with the police investigation and refusing to press charges on each other.

The Anaheim Police Department said that child endangerment charges are being considered against members of a family that were caught on a viral video in a brutal fight in Disneyland's Toontown.

Members of the family that brawled at Disneyland earlier this week will now have to face the Orange County District Attorney for possible charges.

The woman then screams 'Hold my daughter!' and pushes her double stroller to the side as the two men jump around each other with their fists raised.

Video shows a group of people standing near Goofy's Playhouse on Saturday when a man and a woman pushing a stroller with two children got into a heated argument, captured in the almost 4 1/2-minute video.

Blair made a decision to jump into the fight to break it up after he saw a man punch a woman in the brawl, which was reportedly between family members, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Authorities say they are pursuing a criminal case.

Another man steps in and the two males start throwing punches at each other.

Emergency services used an inflatable boat to rescue one motorist stranded in their auto near the National Mall. The flash floods were also reported to have caused delays at the Reagan National Airport .

A crowd of stunned bystanders watched the fight, including children whose loud cries can be heard in the background.

Family members and a park employee tried to intervene and defuse the situation, but the fight continued for several minutes. Moments later, the video showed that same man knocks down another woman, accusing her of hitting his mother.

"Without a doubt I would do it again", Blair said.

Then the man in pink starts to hit the woman in brown saying, 'You hit my momma?' and throws punches to her face and body until she falls to the ground and pulls her hair.

"Any type of violence is inexcusable and will not be tolerated", said Liz Jaeger, a Disneyland Resort spokesperson.

Despite the brutal nature of the fight and the number of people involved, it took security over 5 minutes to respond and break things up.

"Those involved were immediately removed from the premises and turned over to [the Anaheim Police Department, ]" they concluded.
