Polit was reportedly stopped at a security checkpoint Sunday when he tried to get into Animal Kingdom at Disney World.

He told authorities he had moved his handgun from his vehicle to a backpack because he was worried about a vehicle break-in, but he forgot to put it back in the car.

Firearms and other weapons are prohibited at Disney World.

Online court records showed no attorney listed for Polit.
