Disney Park Princess 'Ariel' Allegedly Groped by Sex Offender

(Orlando, FL) -- A Florida man is accused of groping a Disney World princess. The victim was dressed as one of the royal characters last weekend at Magic Kingdom in Orlando.

Deputies say 51-year-old Brian Sherman and his wife were taking photos with characters in the park when Sherman suddenly touched the woman's breast. Sherman reportedly said she was his "favorite character" excitedly as they got ready to take the picture and as he cupped her bra.

One employee says Sherman continued to grope her even after he was asked to move his hand.

The man, who is facing a battery charge, is a registered sex offender. He was arrested Saturday evening at his Orlando residence. Sherman was released from the county jail Monday night after posting $500 bond.

He was convicted in 1991 on four felonies related to the sexual abuse of victims under the age of 12. Sherman was sentenced to a two-year “house arrest program” and placed on probation for 15 years. His probation supervision was terminated in 2006 but according to court documents, Sherman is still subject to registration as a sex offender.
