Farmington, MN (WDAY TV) -- A Minnesota man is accused of roughing up a boy, who allegedly played a doorbell prank on him.

Police say the man was fed-up with so called "ding-dong ditchers," that's where someone rings the doorbell and runs away. So he waited one night until the person returned.

The 45 year old Farmington man, chased down the boy and tackled him. The boy says the man threw him against a fence, punched him in the ribs and dragged him into the street by his hair.

Police say he suffered a dislocated shoulder.
