TPD: 5 arrested during Gasparilla parade

While most pirates and revelers kept things under control during Saturday’s Gasparilla festival, a few people got a little out of line. 

Law enforcement officers at Saturday’s Gasparilla parade arrested five people during the pirate-themed festivities. 

According to the Tampa Police Department, two of those arrested are facing felony charges for battery on a law enforcement officer. The other three were arrested on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and trespassing. 

The FWC says it stopped five people for boating under the influence.
