“Police believe there is the possibility of felony conduct,” Orange County District Attorney spokesperson Kimberly Edds told The Los Angeles Times.

What happens next: “If the district attorney’s office decides not to file felony charges, then the case will be referred to the Anaheim city attorney, who can then weigh misdemeanor charges,” according to the New York Post.
The story: Over the weekend, a profanity-filled video of people fighting at Disneyland in Toontown outside of Goofy’s Playhouse went viral across the internet, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. The people fighting were reportedly members of the same family, according to NBC News. The family reportedly “wanted nothing done” over the case. The involved parties denied anything happened as well, according to reports.
Authorities did not seek charges against the family at first since they didn’t have a video. Once the video went viral, police started investigating the incident.
