Fight Breaks Out Outside Brian Laundrie's Family Home As Protesters Descend on Property

A fight broke out outside the home of Brian Laundrie's family on Wednesday as protesters continued to gather near the residence since his disappearance.

In a video posted to Twitter by Brian Entin of News Nation Now, a neighbor can be seen walking towards two protesters and yelling at them after he claimed they stepped onto his property.

A lot of you asking me about the fight outside the Laundrie house last night between the protestors and the neighbor.

"You ain't no f****** sleuth. "You can sit here all you want with your megaphone. I don't care, but you come on my property again, I'm going to f****** beat your a**," the neighbor can be heard saying in the video.

One of the protesters can be heard telling the neighbor in response that he's going to call 911.

"You're going to prison," the protester can be heard telling the neighbor.

The neighbor then appears to show the two protesters pictures of them on his property saying, "that's not you right there?"

As the video continues, one of the protesters can be heard yelling back at the neighbor saying "You're going to jail...you just assaulted me on camera."

Another angle of the video posted to Twitter by Paul Best of Fox News shows the protester telling the neighbor again "you're going to prison. I'm pressing charges on you, pal."

"The whole world's watching you," the protester said.

According to Fox News, the neighbor seen in the video was later arrested by the North Port Police Department and charged with battery. Newsweek reached out to the North Port Police Department for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Over the past month, the Laundrie family home in North Port, Florida, has become a focal point for media and protesters following the death of 22-year-old Gabby Petito and the disappearance of Laundrie.

Laundrie and Petito were on a cross-country road trip when she went missing and her remains were found several weeks later near Wyoming's Spread Creek area. The Teton County Coroner's office ruled her manner of death as a homicide but the cause of death remains unknown until the full results of the autopsy are completed.

Laundrie returned to his parent's home 10 days before Petito was reported missing by her family. On September 17, the North Port Police announced that Laundrie's family had reported the disappearance of their son and they believed that he was hiding in Florida's Carlton Reserve.

The North Port Police Department, along with officials from the FBI and Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has continued to search the area for Laundrie but they have remained unsuccessful. Laundrie was previously named a person of interest in Petito's disappearance but last week, the U.S. District Court of Wyoming issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie, accusing him of debit card fraud.

"While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr. Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito's homicide," the FBI in Denver noted in a press release announcing the arrest warrant.

On Tuesday, Steven Bertolino, the attorney for Petito's family, issued a statement saying, "The Laundries did not help us find Gabby. They're sure not going to help us find Brian. For Brian, we're asking you to turn yourself in to the FBI or the nearest law enforcement agency."
