How does a postal worker have a 6000 sq ft house and 50,000 a year in disney purchases?

Domestic abuse, of any kind, is a really scary situation. I'm glad that the woman was okay. Hopefully he gets some help to control his anger. It's a shame that this is going to be heavily publicized just because of its small Disney connection. :confused3

I've heard about this guy. Several people said they have seen him in parks and he rudely dismisses them, he's had several minor run ins with law enforcement. As you can see from the article, he is not exactly the poster person for Disney admiration. Personally, I think he made the whole "found my dream girl" thing up to get more publicity for his auctions.

Wow. I'm sorry this nutjob is in any way connected to being a Disney lover.

I would not consider his obession to Disney a small connection. He has been in the news many times about his collections and tatoos.

He seemed weird to me from the get go, too much of anything is too much.

I hate to say it, but I agree. :sad2:

I just check News Channel 13, The Orlando Sentinel, and WFTV. I did not see anything related to him in any of the three local outlets.

I thought that was funny too. The article came from our local paper which is where he lived before he moved to Florida.

Small connection? He is "The Disney Guy" who was arrested at Walt Disney World.

I met him once at the Adventurers Club and took a picture with him. He's kind of a celebrity, now I guess for the wrong reason. He was cordial with me when I asked to take a picture with him.

It was on the NBC local station channel 2 this morning as well. That's where I first heard it.

Hope the woman is ok. Scary situation.

How does a postal worker have a 6000 sq ft house and 50,000 a year in disney purchases?

George is also a magician and does a couple hundred magic shows each year. The house is in a pretty rural area where I'm guessing home values are lower than in more metropolitan areas. His house was great - wall to wall and floor to ceiling Disney. Even lots of Disney things outside the house on the lawn, driveway, walls, etc. Really quite a sight to see. What he made at auction was pennies on the dollar relative to what was sold.

Actually the area his house is/was in is Bucks County which has very high home values. It has become a very upscale area. It has become a kind of suburb for those who travel into Phildelphia to work Also alot of that area is owned by Lehigh University. However, if he purchased it a long time ago, it was mostly farmland and undeveloped at the time so he may have purchased it cheaply.

It's actually not very farm from where we live, hence why the article appeared in our local newspaper so quickly.

The man is obviously mentally ill. I hope he gets the help he needs.

I'm glad the woman is okay. I have to wonder if she doesn't have problems, too, though.

What a sad and ugly mess.

Bethlehem is in Lehigh and Northampton counties. His house is in Lehigh county.

zillow.com (for whatever that's worth) estimates his house at $314,400.

You are correct. I double checked on this last night too. It is still a more upscale area. $314000.00 would definitely be upper middle class.

Yes, I look at his connection as being small because he is not an official Disney employee or "attraction." His only connection is that of being a fan who decided to get a bunch of Disney tattoos. The media is bringing a lot of awareness to this story because it tends to give WDW bad press whenever it can. It's similar to the news reports you read and hear about involving an accident or death, off WDW property, but the headline blasts Disney because the guest was "on the way to" or "coming from" or "near the WDW resort." :sad2:

I agree with you about the media but I do think George is a little more closely related to Disney than some of that other stuff. Though he isn't a cast member, he has been an "unofficial" attraction for years. George spent one weekend per month in WDW and always drew a crowd. Initially, Disney used to get upset and not work with him but eventually, they embraced him and catered to him, having security handle the crowds, giving him VIP access to everything, etc. The picture in my sig, which doesn't show up anymore for some reason, is when we did Festival of the Lion King with George's VIP access. After the show, we went backstage and met the whole cast, many of whom are among George's tattoos.

:) I still think the "cat guy" with the filed teeth and whiskers is MORE bizarre than George. I am glad they helped the lady and filed charges.
