Who knows how it got to this point (not that it even matters), but a Portland, OR resident was arrested for choking his girlfriend out with his dreadlocks. Caleb Grotberg, 32, was arrested yesterday morning after police responded to a domestic violence call.

Grotberg's girlfriend told police that he assaulted her, then choked her using his dreads. After a quick sweep of the neighborhood, police located Grotberg and took him into custody. He was charged with second degree kidnapping and assault, fourth degree assault, menacing and domestic violence. 

No word on what's living in his beard.
