Updated:

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - Police say they arrested a 20-year-old Fitchburg man who flew into a rage when his mother asked him to switch bedrooms with his sister, kicking a door off its hinges and pushing the younger woman several times.

Kyle Singleton was charged Monday with assault and battery and malicious destruction of property.

He was released on $100 bail after pleading not guilty.

Police say Singleton kicked the bedroom door so hard it was knocked off its hinges and damaged the wall. Singleton also allegedly pushed his 18-year-old sister multiple times as she brought her belongings into the bedroom. Another brother called police and restrained Singleton until they arrived.

The Sentinel and Enterprise (http://bit.ly/XPbaGy ) reports that when placed in a police cruiser, Singleton screamed, kicked and banged his head against the door.
