Milkshake argument prompts arrest

An Anna Maria man was arrested March 22 after he allegedly battered a woman over a milkshake.

Monte Veon, 71, 200 block of Gladiolus Street, faces a battery charge after he pushed a woman who tried to prevent him from taking items from the refrigerator.

Veon was allegedly in the kitchen of his home around 11 p.m. when he decided to make himself a treat before turning in for bed.

According to the report, he placed the ingredients on the counter and was attempting to reach inside the refrigerator for milk when the victim tried to stop him.

Veon allegedly pushed her out of the way to gain access to the fridge. While Veon drank his milkshake, she called the sheriff.

He was arrested and taken to the Manatee County jail. He was released the next day on a $500 bond.

Veon’s arraignment will be held at 8:30 a.m., April 24 at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. West, Bradenton.
