ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a fight at a Walt Disney World shopping and dining complex briefly caused a panic among guests who mistakenly believed they had heard a gunshot.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lourdes Clayton said in an email late Friday that one person was arrested for disorderly conduct after the fight at Bongos Cuban Cafe in the Disney Springs entertainment center.

Clayton says the fight around 9:30 p.m. on the crowded restaurant’s second floor caused loud noises, and then someone reported that a shot had been fired.

Clayton says there were no gunshots, but the disturbance caused guests to panic, sending them running from the restaurant.

According to an arrest report, an unarmed diner upset about the service for his meal got into an altercation with three restaurant employees.
