North Dakota

A North Dakota man has been charged with burglary and terrorizing after he reacted angrily to a former employer's Facebook snub.

Caleb Burczyk, 29, of Williston, appeared in court last week and pleaded not guilty to two charges following the incident in December.

Per the Duluth News Tribune, Burczyk started sending his former boss threatening Facebook messages on Christmas Eve after the boss failed to respond to his Facebook friend request.

Among the messages he sent was: "Accept my friend request or I'm going to murder you."

Then, on Dec. 26, Burczyk kicked in the front door of the home belonging to the coworker's father.

Per the Williston Daily Herald, Burczyk also posted a picture of himself on Snapchat with a message about his boss' family needing a new door.
