A Vermont man, who authorities say was angry over an arrest and used his tractor to drive over seven police vehicles, is expected in court.
State Police say 34-year-old Roger Pion (PEE'-on) was taken into custody in Newport on Thursday, shortly after he allegedly crushed the Orleans County sheriff's vehicles. Estimated damage was at least $250,000.
He was apparently mad over his recent arrest on resisting arrest and marijuana possession charges.
Sheriff's deputies working inside their building didn't know what was happening until a neighbor called 911. They didn't hear the ruckus outside because their air conditioners were humming. They said they couldn't pursue the man because their cars were crushed.
Pion faces numerous charges. He's expected to appear in court Friday. Authorities didn't know if he had a lawyer.
