Sheriff: naked man in lawn chair threatens neighbors with AK-47

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A Rowan County man was jailed under a $2,000 bond, charged with indecent exposure and communicating threats, and investigators say the man admitted to them that he committed both acts because of a dispute with his neighbor.

According to the Rowan County Detention Center web site, Brian Tracy Carroll, 45, was booked into the jail on Saturday night just after 7:30.

The incident was first reported to deputies on Saturday afternoon, according to the report.  A homeowner near Deal Road had called to say that his neighbor was sitting in the back yard totally naked, and that his chair was less than thirty feet from where the homeowner's teen daughter was riding a horse.

When deputies arrived, they found Carroll "completely naked" on the back porch of his home at 2828 Deal Road, lot 5.  The report indicated Carroll had a towel around his neck.

The report notes that when asked why he was naked, Carroll, referring to his neighbor said "he p***** me off so I sat in that chair."  Carroll allegedly told deputies that he wanted to be naked and wasn't going to put on any clothes, stating "I don't care."

Deputies asked Carroll if he had threatened his neighbors by saying that he had an AK-47 and "knew how to use it."  Carroll said that he did make the statement, then laughed, according to the report.

The report notes that Carroll, who is listed as "disabled" on the arrest report, was exposing his "private parts" and "other full frontal nudity."

Carroll has a court date of June 18.
