Bradenton man charged with disturbing the peace, yelling obscenities at neighbors

MANATEE -- A Bradenton man was charged with disturbing the peace Saturday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Brian Thomas Milton Vikingstad, 40, was arrested at 5:17 p.m. Saturday. According to a report, Vikingstad had stood in the neighbor's yard over the last two days yelling obscenities and threatening statements in front of the victim's families, including children. Law enforcement was called out on several occasions in reference to his behavior.

On Saturday, a deputy arrived at the duplex located in the 5600 block of 18th Street West and found Vikingstad yelling at his neighbors again. He appeared intoxicated, according to deputies, and was told by a deputy to not speak or threaten his neighbors again. Vikingstad said he was going back inside his home.

According to a report, the deputy parked nearby and saw Vikingstad leave again and begin to yell at his neigbor. Deputies said he held a beer in his hand and was flailing his arms around. The deputy drove closer and heard Vikingstad call the neighbors slurs. He was placed under arrest and, according to a report, began yelling obscenities at deputies.

Vikingstad was released Monday from Manatee County jail on $120 bond, according to the sheriff's website.
