[Not So] Mature: Woman Arrested After Allegedly Choking Girl Who Blocked Her View At Disney World

Many of us have experienced the frustration of waiting to see the parade or fireworks at Disney only to be blocked by the crush of the crowd.  There are However, while some may entertain the idea of strangling people blocking you, Tabbatha Mature, 41, is accused of doing just that.  Worst yet, the alleged victim was a young girl.

Around 9:30 pm, Mature was waiting to see the fireworks when a group of students and chaperones from an out-of-state high school showed up.  When the fireworks began, the alleged victim and her friends stood up to get a better view and Mature (and her family) told them to sit down.  According to the girl, they decided to leave the spot because Mature seemed overly aggravated.  As they walked away, the girl turned to Mature and said “You can take our spot.” Mature’s alleged response was to grab the girl by the neck and push her to the ground while squeezing her neck.  The girl began to scream and Mature reportedly let go and said “You don’t want to mess with me.”

Mature was arrested on a child abuse charge.  It appears that the role of Grumpy is already taken at the Happiest Place On Earth.

  1. A child??? If the kid was from a high school, as it states in the article, then she was probably at least 14 years old,or maybe even 18. Which in Florida, from age 14 up a “child” can be charged as an adult. And, IIRC, Florida leads the nation in charging kids as adults, which I have no problem with. But it seems a little disingenuous to call them a “child” when it suits you, and an adult when it suits you. That is kind Schrodinger-y if you get my drift.

    Maybe states need a “Yute Statute”???

    1. Hey, at least they are not Schrodinger’s cat.

      But you are right – teenager or girl is a more accurate description.

  2. Her last name is ironic.

    Even if the girl said something flippant, Mature appears to have reached adulthood without learning that you cannot put your hands on someone because you are angry. If she is so out of control as to choke a child in full view of everyone at Disneyland, who knows what else she’s done in the past. I suspect this is not the first time she’s been violent. I’m curious if any bystanders assisted, or if they were afraid to peel off a violent woman because that would entail putting their own hands on a female.

    She’s rubbish and can enjoy a tour of our court system, and very likely our penal system.

  3. Maybe she was, or is, a he. Also wonder if there was alcohol involved. Makes some people belligerent.

  4. Look how thick that woman’s neck is ….. Did she play football in high school?? What a sweetie.

  5. The, “You don’t want to mess with me.”, bit presents a bruiser who may have been bruised herself. She must have a lot of pent up whatever to drag that baggage through Disneyland. She belongs in the ‘black hole’ at a Raiders game.

  6. I have only been to Disneyland and they don’t have seating. Most people are very nice about letting the little kids get in front so they can see. She could have been PMSing.

  7. The crushing burden of living up to her last name came to a screeching halt.
