Drunk Disney on Ice performers arrested

Two drunk Disney on Ice performers have been arrested and kicked out of the show after partying in a hotel in New South Wales.

Acting Inspector Craig Hassett said police were called to the Newcastle Travelodge around 3.30am (AEST) on Monday after complaints about a rowdy party from other guests.

He said a Russian man and a Ukrainian man, who were touring with the Disney Princesses and Heroes ice skating show, were arrested for being "heavily intoxicated" and abusing hotel staff.

The men were forcefully removed from the hotel by police and detained for about two-and-a-half hours until being released into the care of their management.

"They were being disruptive at the Travelodge, that's why police were originally called and they were detained as intoxicated persons," Insp Hassett said.

"Then a representative of the Disney management came to the police station and they were released into the care and control of their management team."

No charges will be laid.

The skaters, who had just performed a show in Newcastle and were preparing for shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, had been removed from the company, Senior Constable Juan Mahony told the Newcastle Herald.
