Police in Petaluma made a pair of arrests on wanted DUI offenders Saturday. Acting out on an anonymous tip, police and the California Parole Apprehension Team conducted two surveillance operations, targeting Ryan Karr, 32, of Windsor, and Jonathan Lewis, 34, of Rohnert Park, police said. Karr was arrested while attending a concert at the Phoenix Theatre in Petaluma, around 9:15 p.m., according to police.
He was on active parole for a felony manslaughter DUI case from 2007 in which five of six occupants died.

As he prepared to walk into the Society Club, he was arrested, according to police. He was under the influence at the time of his arrest, police said. He was booked into jail without bail.
