ORLANDO — An Orlando resort is suing a guest, alleging battery against one of the resort's employees.
Westgate Resorts LTD filed a complaint Feb. 26 in Orange County Circuit Court against Laura Chapman, alleging she pushed or shoved an employee, causing him to fall and sustain injuries.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 12, 2016, at the Wesgate Resorts in Orlando, employee Fernando Pineda-Prieto delivered items to Chapman's room. The suit says Chapman pushed Pineda-Prieto, causing him to fall and sustain injuries.
