LAS VEGAS (AP) — No one was seriously injured but more than two dozen people were taken into custody in Las Vegas after a fight broke out following the city’s annual parade honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
Police Lt. Grant Rogers told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that 23 minors and six adults were arrested after a series of altercations in downtown Las Vegas Monday afternoon.
The Las Vegas Sun reported the only person who required medical treatment was a man who apparently was punched in the lip.
It’s not clear what started the fight that marred an otherwise peaceful celebration as thousands of people took to the streets for the parade off the Las Vegas Strip.
