An “impaired” Alex Morgan and multiple players from MLS team Orlando City were thrown out of a Disney World park in Orlando on Sunday night, TMZ reports.

In addition to Morgan, Orlando City players Donny Toia and Giles Barnes were among a group of six listed on an Orange County (Fla.) incident report documenting why the group was escorted from the park and accused of trespass, Alicia DelGallo of the Orlando Sentinel reports. “Several individuals” in this group were referred to as “impaired and verbally aggressive,” according to the incident report, one centered around an argument at one of the bars in the park.

Barnes cutting in front of another patron led to an argument and prompted the police response, TMZ reports. Barnes was told to leave and not return, DelGallo reports. No charges were filed after the players left the park.

A star on the U.S. women’s national team in the past two World Cups, Morgan plays for the National Women’s Soccer League’s Orlando Pride. Pride coach Tom Sermanni said during a conference call said he expected Morgan to play in the NWSL semifinal match against Portland on Saturday.

As we passed Spaceship Earth, I observed several people being escorted to the front,” a deputy wrote in the report. “They were all being very loud and belligerent toward staff around guests. I observed a white female, who was later identified as Alexandria Morgan yelling, screaming and taken (sic) video and possibly pictures. She appeared to be highly impaired.”

The report also includes the 28-year-old Morgan making a “loud verbal statement” she knows the Orlando SWAT team, with TMZ writing the soccer star said this in hopes of convincing officers to let her go.

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 MLS club wrote in a statement issued to the Sentinel on Tuesday. “The club will address the matter internally when there is a full understanding of what occurred.”
