Daily News reports:
It’s a story of the wood, the bad and the ugly.
After deciding to kick in the door of a stranger’s apartment on Monday, Matthew Lawrence Bergstedt, 27, came face-to-face with one law-abiding log, WTVD reports.
The apartment’s resident response was to beat Bergstedt over the head, giving him two giant black eyes as well as cuts on his face.
After the timber’s tough treatment, Bergstedt made like a tree and left, lumbering away to bust into a vacant apartment close by.
Raleigh Police Department would eventually respond, charging the North Carolina man with breaking and entering and attempted breaking and entering.
According to WTVD, Bergstedt’s actions weren’t totally random, as he once had a relationship with a woman who used to live at the now-firewood-featuring apartment.
The Raleigh Police Department did not return a call for comment.
