The Florida States Attorney has said that there will be no charges filed against “Tigger.” Michael J. Fedelem, the actor who played Tigger at Disney was accused by a NH teen of intentionally striking him. The much played video evidence appeared rather weak. The accusations of a Tigger slap seemed more like an opportunity for a frivolous law suit.
The district attorney said he believes Jerry Jr. instigated the incident. He also questioned the Monaco’s reaction to the situation. “The family didn’t react like they wanted justice, they reacted like they wanted cash.” (Thrill Network)
Tigger is free to bounce away, because Tiggers are wonderful things …
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Criminal charges will not be filed against a Disney employee accused of hitting a teenager while in costume as the Winnie the Pooh character “Tigger,” authorities said.
The State Attorney’s Office announced Thursday that it will not press charges against Michael J. Fedelem. Prosecutors made the decision after reviewing a complaint from New Hampshire resident Jerry Monaco.
