    Two tourists battered each other over Disney World tickets and a golf cart in a brutal brawl that landed both of them behind bars last week, Florida authorities said.

    Missouri women Katherine Northrup, 31, and Gina Danforth, 28, fought each other inside a Wildwood, Florida home where they were hanging out with several other people, local police said, according to Fox 35.

    The two started bickering over Disney tickets and the golf cart when their fight turned physical.

    Northrup claimed Danforth “got in her face and was spitting,” and then grabbed her hair and pinned her down, according to an arrest affidavit from Wildwood police.

    Both women allegedly admitted to taking a swing at the other, the affidavit obtained by the local Fox station states.

    When cops reached the home, the two women had to be separated as Northrup allegedly became “belligerent,” the document states.

    Northrup had a visible scratch on her neck that can be seen in her mugshot. She also had scratches on her elbow and stomach, Fox 35 reported.

    Meanwhile, Danforth was “not feeling well,” and was taken to a local hospital, per the affidavit.

    Both women were taken to the Sumter County Detention Center after authorities couldn’t figure out who sparked the fight “due to the lack of credible witnesses,” according to the affidavit.

    Danforth and Northrup were both charged with battery and posted $1,000 bond.
