METAIRIE, La. -- The Metairie St. Patrick's Day parade was interrupted Sunday after a float stopped and a man was taken off by deputies after allegedly being involved in a fight.

According to the New Orleans Advocate, an eyewitness sent in video, saying the man was removed after riders hailed Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Deputies.

The video was taken in the 1500 block of Metairie Road near Metairie Shopping Center.

Reports said it's unclear is the man belonged on the float or jumped aboard, and calls to JPSO were not immediately returned.
