A group that included U.S. women's national team soccer standout Alex Morgan was kicked out of Disney World in Orlando, Fla., over the weekend, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that an Orange County Sheriff's Office report stated that Orlando City players Donald Toia and Giles Barnes, as well as Morgan, who plays for the Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League, were among the people escorted out of Disney World's Epcot park on Sunday after officials said they became verbally aggressive with park security and other guests.

According to the report, Epcot managers called deputies to deal with several people who were "impaired and verbally aggressive." In the report a deputy said Morgan "appeared to be highly impaired."

No charges were filed in connection with the incident.

Orlando City Soccer Club, which operates the men's and women's teams, issued a statement to the Sentinel: "The Orlando City SC organization is aware of a situation that occurred at Walt Disney World's Epcot theme park earlier this week and is awaiting official communication from Disney or the Orange County Police Department. The club will address the matter internally when there is a full understanding of what occurred."
