A Kentucky man was arrested for criminal behavior carried out at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida.
Clayton James Snider, 22, was arrested and charged with third-degree video voyeurism on October 7 after allegedly recording another male guest inside a restroom at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at Disney World, according to Orange County arrest records.
According to the arrest report, an unidentified male, determined to be older than 19 years, was eating dinner with his family at the Grand Floridian Cafe inside the resort when he left the table to go to the restroom.
The unidentified male claimed that while he was in the restroom stall, another individual photographed him by holding a camera of some kind over the stall wall. The victim said the individual was wearing slip-on Skechers shoes that were black in color. He said that after the incident, he returned to the table where his family was and described the incident to them.
The victim and a family member returned to the restroom to confront Snider, but it’s difficult to know which family member accompanied the victim, as many parts of the arrest report have been redacted. Per the report, however, Snider gave an answer of “No” in an aloof tone when he was asked about whether he had indeed photographed the victim. The report also indicates that Snider refused to hand over his phone when asked.
According to the Orange County report of arrest, Snider then left the restroom, and the victim’s family told at least one Disney employee about the incident. Law enforcement was also contacted in regard to the incident, and officers were dispatched to the location on Disney property.
When asked by an official to hand over his phone, Snider kept the phone and typed, tapped, or otherwise manipulated the screen before handing over the device, and it is the arresting officer’s opinion that Snider was deleting images from the phone at that time.
Snider then only allowed the official to browse through images in one photo album on the phone, which turned up no images that would have incriminated him. But then, officials were able to browse an album of recently deleted images and discovered images they needed to make an arrest and charge Snider with video voyeurism. It is also noted in the report that Snider was wearing black Skechers, like the ones described by the victim.
According to the arresting officer, Courteney Gallon, a video found in the deleted album on the phone “depicted an adolescent Caucasian male sitting on a toilet in a bathroom stall.” The report goes on to say, “From the perspective of the video, it was clear that it had been taken from an elevated position over the divider. The young male had his shorts down around his ankles and was wearing a blue shirt.”
