Despite another very large crowd on hand to take in the festivities, Corpus Christi Police and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers working the Buccaneer Parade reported relatively few problems Saturday night. There were no major incidents reported along the parade route during this year's event, and only two minor injuries sustained by parade goers. One spectator was transported to a local hospital following what appeared to be a seizure in the city hall parking lot. A female participant sustained a minor injury when a truck ran over her foot during the parade; she declined medical treatment.
Although they described the crowd as well behaved, officers reported making the following arrests along the parade route:
15 arrests for Public Intoxication
3 arrests for outstanding warrants
1 arrest for Possession of a controlled substance
I citation for Minor in Possession
