An accused burglar came out worse for wear Saturday night after trying to break into a Carolina Beach, N.C., home, police said.
John Alexander Bracken, 28, faces charges of burglary and injury to real and personal property, reports WNCN.
Police responding to a report of a break-in at 9 p.m. Saturday found Bracken lying in the home’s front yard. Bracken had kicked in the front door of the home and a fight broke out when the resident came to investigate, police said. The resident was uninjured, but the same can’t be said for Bracken, going by his police mug shot.
