Park security and Mason Police responded to the drop-off area at Kings Island on Saturday night after "unruly juvenile behavior occurred," according to a statement from the park. Four juveniles were arrested at the scene.
In a statement, Kings Island confirmed surveillance video footage showed that a group of juveniles were verbally harassing a boy and his father Saturday evening around 8:10 p.m.
Law enforcement summoned to the scene determined the father, who was picking up his son, was in possession of a firearm. However, Kings Island's statement said the man had a valid concealed carry permit and never brandished the firearm.
Four juveniles were arrested and transported to the Warren County Juvenile Detention Center. No charges were filed against the adult involved.
The park reiterated its stance that the safety and security of its guests and employees was the top priority of Kings Island management and they had a zero tolerance policy for incidents of this type.
Warren County officials announced one 18-year-old and five juveniles -- one 17, two 16 and two 14 -- face charges of assault, obstructing official business, disorderly conduct and inducing panic for the incident in May.
