Man in USA caught by police while trying to self-quarantine on closed Disney park

A few days back, police in Rishikesh caught a group of foreign tourists hiding in a cave during the ongoing lockdown. Now, another similar case has emerged in the USA.

A 42-year-old man called Richard McGuire was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s deputies in Florida for trespassing and self-quarantining on a shuttered Disney’s Discovery Island, which for him appeared to be a tropical island. Surprisingly, this Disney park has been closed since 1999. When questioned about his unwarranted stay, the man said that he had been living on the island for more than two days, and had plans to camp there for a week!

News has it that some Disney officials witnessed Richard moving towards the island on a motorboat. In no time, the deputies began a search operation to find Richard until they found him sleeping inside the island. When the police caught Richard, he defended himself by saying that he was unaware of the island being a no-entry zone, although there were several ‘no trespassing’ signs everywhere.

Using a public address system, the Orange County Marine deputies told Richard that he is not permitted to stay on the island. Yet, the man paid no heed to the warnings; he was eventually sent to prison. Formerly known as the Treasure Island, it used to be a zoological park until it shut down in 1999.
