TURLOCK, Calif. — Four deputies were injured and a sheriff's horse was punched during a brawl Sunday at a county fair in California, the Modesto Bee reported.
Five people were arrested after the fight on the last day of the Stanislaus County Fair, the newspaper reported.
Sgt Josh Clayton of the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department said one beer booth closed 45 minutes, early, causing larger crowds at the other booths, the Bee reported.
Mounted units came to help disperse the crowd, and one man apparently was knocked down by one of the horses, the Sheriff's Department said. The man, "upset his beer had spilled," punched Maximus, one of the deputies' horses, in the rear. The man was arrested, according to the Sheriff's Department.
