'I Was Kinda Showing Out': Man Apologizes After Licking Stranger's Doorbell

A man in Batesville, Arkansas, made a heartfelt apology on March 26 after he was caught on camera, three days prior, licking a couple’s Ring doorbell.

“What I did the other night was absolutely uncalled for and I understand that and I apologize," the man told Matthew Wehmeier, who lives at the property with his wife, Crystal.

An earlier video shows the man walking up and licking the camera, twice, before he and his friend start dancing.

“I was kinda showing out and putting on a show for the camera. And that’s not okay," the man said. “I apologize for that.”

In the video, Wehmeier responds to the man through the camera. “I appreciate that. That’s stand up of you," he can be heard saying. “Very, very honest of you and stand up of you.”

Wehmeier told local media that while he appreciated the apology, he hoped the man and the wider public understood the consequences of their actions during the time of the coronavirus pandemic. Credit: Matthew Wehmeier via Storyful
