It’s never a good idea to kick in the door of someone’s apartment, especially if it’s your ex-girlfriend’s, as this guy quickly found out.

According to The News and Observer, in Raleigh, NC, Matthew Lawrence Bergstedt is accused of forcing his way into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment when the 27-year-old was abruptly met by a firewood wielding man.

Reports state that Bergstedt kicked in the door and was met by a 20-year-old male who struck him in the face with the firewood. The suspect, full of blood and bruises, looks like he suffered a losing battle in his mugshot.

A jail spokesman reported that Bergstedt was transported by police to the Wake County jail. He was released from custody Tuesday morning after posting a bond of $3,000.
