Fights follow annual Petaluma parade

Petaluma police are looking for a man suspected of beating a person unconscious Saturday in the aftermath of a community celebration.

The beating took place on the 100-block of Kentucky Street. Officers called at 6:12 p.m. found a 25-year-old man unconscious and bleeding in the street, Petaluma Police Sgt. Marty Frye said.

The beating was among a steady stream of incidents in and around downtown in the aftermath of the Butter & Egg Days Parade and Festival, Frye said.

While the event took place without a hitch, by evening officers were fielding a steady stream of issues, including 11 fights and seven calls to handle drunk and disorderly people, Frye said.

Two men, ages 63 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, and a woman's purse was snatched at 8:25 p.m. at a downtown restaurant, Frye said.
