Sunday night Walton County deputies responded to 25 Eagle Bay Court when a call came in from a woman stating her husband was choked by an unknown person who had the wrong address.
Shortly after 11pm, the victim heard banging on the front door and when he opened it, he was confronted by David Lord.
Lord burst into the victim’s residence and started choking him. A scuffle ensued and the victim was able to get free. At that point, Lord repeatedly said to the victim “you are the wrong man” and then left the residence.
The victim was able to provide a description of Lord and the vehicle he left in. Deputies made contact with Lord at the 6700 block of County Road 30A. Lord was detained and at that time told deputies that he saw his girlfriend earlier in the evening with a man she was cheating on him with and went to her house to work things out. He admitted he went to the wrong house, knocked on the wrong door and apologized and left.
Lord was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and simple battery. Lord was transported to the Walton County Jail.
