SANTA ROSA BEACH - A jealous ex-boyfriend is dealing with a lot more trouble than heart ache.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office says David Lord meant to go to his ex-girlfriend’s house and confront the man he thought she cheated on him with.

Around 11:00 p.m. Sunday, deputies say Lord knocked on the door of a house on Bald Eagle Court in Santa Rosa Beach. When Caleb Johnson answered, deputies say Lord burst in and started choking Johnson.

Johnson managed to break free after a short scuffle. That’s when Lord had a light bulb moment. He said “you are the wrong man,” over and over again, and then left. It turns out, Lord knocked on the wrong door.

Lord is charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, a felony, and misdemeanor battery.
