Northshore man booked with trying to take a gun into Epcot

ORLANDO, Fla. - An Abita Springs man was arrested and booked after officials at Disney said he tried to enter Epcot with a loaded gun Monday morning.

Michael Langston, 61, was booked with carrying a concealed firearm. 

According to the incident report, the arresting officer was working security detail at the park when he was alerted by another officer working a check-in line about a security situation.
 


The arresting officer said that Langston was told by the security office that he had been selected to go through a metal detector, at which point Langston told the officer he was armed.

The officer asked Langston if he had a concealed weapons permit, which he did not.

The report said that Langston had a jacket wrapped around his waist, that covered the rear of his back. Langston was taken to a vehicle nearby and the officer had him remove the jacket. A Smith and Wesson Bodyguard .380 Automatic with a six-round magazine was taken from Langston.

Langston was issued a "trespass warning" from all Walt Disney World property, which means that should he appear on Disney property again, he could be stopped for violating the trespass order.
