A Sacramento man was detained for fighting in public at the Sacramento Convention Center Monday after the March for the Dream, Sacramento police said.
Joshua Kennedy, 23, engaged in a fight inside the Diversity Expo at the convention center around noon, said Matt McPhail, spokesman for the Sacramento Police Department.
The convention center on J Street is advertised as the final celebratory gathering place for marchers who walked Sacramento streets Monday morning in honor of the late civil rights activist.
Kennedy engaged in a fight with a man inside the convention center, and then later outside the building, McPhail said.

Kennedy continued to fight until officers separated the two by striking him with a Taser and detaining him, McPhail added.
Firefighters arrived on scene to evaluate Kennedy’s medical condition, McPhail said. Kennedy was not injured, but as precaution, he was transported to a local hospital.
“He will likely be cited for a misdemeanor and released,” McPhail said. Kennedy will be cited for fighting in public and causing a disturbance.
