United States women's national team soccer star Alex Morgan apologized Wednesday for actions that led to her and others getting kicked out of Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday.

Morgan posted her apology on Twitter:

According to Alicia DelGallo of the Orlando Sentinel, Morgan and Orlando City FC players Donny Toia and Giles Barnes were among six players thrown out of the park after Epcot managers told police they were "impaired and verbally aggressive."

The incident report alleged Barnes cut in front of someone inside the U.K. pub before getting into a verbal argument.

A deputy also wrote the following about Morgan: "I observed a white female, who was later identified as Alexandria Morgan yelling, screaming and taken [sic] video and possibly pictures. She appeared to be highly impaired."

The deputy also wrote Morgan was heard making "a loud verbal statement" that she knows the Orlando SWAT team.

On Sunday, Morgan posted the following group photo at Epcot on Instagram:

Morgan plays for the NWSL's Orlando Pride, while her husband, Servando Carrasco, plays for Orlando City in MLS.

The 28-year-old Morgan and the Pride are set to face Portland in the NWSL semifinal Saturday, and she is reportedly expected to play.
