The suspect, 22-year-old Eric Elizagoyen of Bakersfield, was arrested and booked into the Kern County Jail for attempted homicide after fleeing the scene in a vehicle before being caught just a short distance away from where he brawl took place.

Elizagoyen, a convicted felon, had just finished a three-year summary probation term for a 2010 charge of possess/manufacture/sell a dangerous weapon.
