(Scroll down for video) What was supposed to be a nice vacation for a family in Florida, ended with their mother being arrested.

Police were called to Disney World, after a teenager claimed she was choked by a woman.

The teenager who was visiting the theme park with a group of students and chaperones from her out-of-state high school, told police that the woman choked her for blocking her view during a fireworks display.

41-year-old Tabbatha Mature of Michigan, was arrested on charges of child abuse over the alleged incident at the Magic Kingdom theme park.

According to the police report, Mature and her family were sitting behind the girl and her friends around 9:30 p.m., while waiting for the fireworks to begin.

When the show began, the victim and her friends stood up to have a better view. Mature asked them to sit down as they were blocking the family’s view.

When the girls did not sit down but decided to leave instead, deputies said Maduro grabbed the girl by her neck, and squeezed and pushed her head to the ground.

The victim and her friends reported the incident to a Disney World employee. The teenager did not have many visible injuries, according to police.

Mature was released after posting $2,000 bond.
