Man Charges Stage After Magician's Quip on Donald Trump

An amusement park in Connecticut says it ejected a spectator who charged the stage during a magician's performance after the entertainer made a joke about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The Greenwich Time reports Jim Sisti, of Beacon Falls, had been performing on Saturday at the Lake Quassy Amusement Park & Waterpark in Middlebury when a child told him she liked tacos.

Sisti says he made a quip alluding to Trump's rhetoric on Mexicans, prompting an angry spectator to stand up, run at the stage, and begin a vulgar tirade as several children were on stage.

Sisti says 100 spectators attended the show and many began "catcalling."

A park spokesman confirmed the unidentified spectator was ejected following the incident. The man wasn't banned from future visits.
