    No charges to be filed after 'Tigger' complaint

    Tigger, the Walt Disney World character, is no longer in the cross-hairs of the State Attorney's Office.

    No charges will be filed against 31-year-old Michael J. Fedelem, the employee playing Winnie the Pooh's bouncy friend, the State Attorney's Office announced today.

    Prosecutors reviewed the complaint that Tigger punched a 14-year-old during a home-video session at Disney-MGM Studios last month.

    Growing up is however, optional

    From just reviewing it, it just looks like Tigger was just turning to pull the teen off him and hit him accidentally. You can sort of see Tigger patting him in apology.

    How can anyone think Tigger punched him. That wasn't even a punch. Maybe a pat!

    Well, one suit, at least. I'll be very surprised if the suit ends profitably for the kid, the dad or the lawyer.

    Good! Tigger was innocent (or justified) and I'm glad the judge realized this

    Self defense my foot. I watched that film clip. Everyone knows that Tigger is one mean cat. I know from first hand experience that he really did intend to slug that poor kid. I mean just look at the evil in Tiggers eyes he really did want to hurt that kid. It was his intention to make the kid look like a fool. Just look at the facts, Tigger has not been the same sense they took out the country bears and put in that lame pooh ride in, his temperament has changed when that dreadful ride went in. how can we blame tigger for wanting to slug that kid. Disney has refused to give Tigger any money for therapy, and then they except him to conform to the social norms. I tell you itís just not right.
