According to reports, Spectacular Smith, entrepreneur and member of the group Pretty Ricky, was arrested for allegedly hitting a worker at Walt Disney World on Sunday.
After news broke, Smith took to Instagram and issued a statement to his fans in an attempt to explain the incident.
"The media will put out a one sided story even without facts, because they enjoy demonizing our culture and bring us down". He said there are 2 sides to the story and said he'll wait for his lawyer's go-ahead to give a full account of his side. Thanks for your support. In response, the Cast Member asked him to leave the line twice, but Smith refused. (The worker) told Smith what he said was not amusing. A nearby Cast Member told him the gesture wasn't amusing, to which Smith replied "I thought it was". After being asked to leave several times and being blocked from entering a ride, Smith allegedly hit the employee. Love. Ps: "Y'all know my character". Smith then "turned and punched him on his right side jaw and right temple area", per the affidavit. For what it's worth. cops say Smith's son told them his dad "lost his balance falling to the ground" while trying to duck under the worker's arm. and when he reached out for something to grab, "accidentally punched [the worker] on his face".
After the incident occurred, the Disney employee called upon police and told the reporting officers that he "stumbled and fell" and he "was in shock and thought he might've lost consciousness" from Smith's punch.
Subsequent to his arrest, Smith used his Instagram stories to express his thoughts about the incident.
The Cast Member was taken to a hospital as a precaution, and was found to have suffered a concussion.
