Adding a New Gate! (but not where you'd think)

Man convicted of groping Minnie Mouse
Okay people. We all know how to conduct ourselves in the Parks. We all know what acceptable behavior is and what is simply NOT acceptable. OogieBoogie reports that, apparently, somebody did not get this memo and got himself into some trouble while at WDW. Somebody who should be old enough to know better. Somebody's grandfather. The Cast Members who make the magic happen don't always get the respect they deserve. And sometimes Guests get convicted of battery when they get out of line. Tsk-tsk!
