LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A contracted janitorial worker at Walt Disney World Resort has been arrested, accused of sexual battery on a coworker at Blizzard Beach. Michael Cooper, 31, plead not guilty on Monday to charges of sexual battery and battery.
The victim says he and Cooper were working at the water park after hours last may, when Cooper approached him and started asking sexually explicit questions. According to investigators, Cooper forced himself on the victim and sexually battered him.
Court records show that Cooper has been arrested at least 24 times in Florida since 1999 on charges ranging from grand theft to drug possession. A Disney spokesperson said the company no longer works with the contract company that employed Cooper.
