Man accused of groping teens at Disney water park out of jail

- A man accused of groping teens at a popular Disney water park bonded out of Orange County Jail overnight.

27-year-old Aman Bhatia was arrested on Sunday at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, six victims between the ages of 12 and 16 claim he touched or grabbed them in the wave pool.

Witnesses told deputies he would position himself in front of a teen and as the waves would come down he would touch them.

According to the arrest affidavit, several adults and a lifeguard confronted Bhatia and then deputies arrived.

Bhatia denies those claims, insisting he never intentionally touched anyone.

He told deputies he left his broken glasses in the locker and his vision was fuzzy and if he bumped into people he would apologize.

He is charged with four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and two counts of battery.

Disney has also banned him from all of Disney's parks in Florida for life.
