North Carolina Man Fights Intruder with Firewood

A man accused of kicking the door in of an apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina got a painful surprise when the man inside beat him with a piece of firewood Monday.

Police said after the resident hit him, Bergstedt fled the scene and broke into a nearby vacant apartment.

Bergstedt was charged with breaking and entering and attempted breaking and entering, police say.
