USA women's striker Alex Morgan 'impaired', kicked out of Epcot

USA striker Alex Morgan and two players from MLS' Orlando City were kicked out of Disney World after officials say they were "impaired and verbally aggressive."

An Orange County Sheriff's Office police reports says Orlando City Lions players Donald Toia and Giles Barnes, along with U.S. women's national team standout and Orlando City Pride star Alex Morgan, were all escorted out of Disney World's Epcot park on Sunday, according to the Associated Press. Toia's wife also was ejected.

Morgan was "yelling and screaming" and stated she knew the Orlando SWAT team, the BBC reported

The report also states that the 28-year-old forward was "highly impaired."

The group began arguing with guest and workers after Barnes cut in line at the United Kingdom pavilion's pub, the report says. They was taken to a conference room before being led out of Epcot.

The Orlando City Soccer Club issued a statement on Tuesday saying that it is aware of the incident, the Associated Press reported. Both the Lions of Major League Soccer and the Pride of the National Women's Soccer League are on international break for the week.

Information from the Associated Press and the BBC was used in this report.
