Angry Man Flattens Eight Police Cars With His Tractor [VIDEO]
A man driving a farm tractor ran over eight vehicles in the parking lot of a Vermont police station. Reports say it was an "apparent revenge scheme." One witness described the scene as a "Monster Jam Rally."
Witness Rene Morris told local TV station, WCAX:
“I just couldn’t believe it. He’s backing up, going over it, turns around, makes his way to the other vehicles smashes those up, did his business and headed right down Route 5.”
With the vehicles crushed, police had no way to pursue Pion after he drove off in the tractor. But police caught up and arrested, Roger Pion, about a mile and a half from the police station. Pion ran over and crushed seven police cars and one unmarked police car.
The motive is still under investigation, but witnesses believe the guy was angry about his recent arrest for marijuana possession and resisting arrest.
Sheriff Kirk Martin told The Associated Press:
"Not only were their roofs and hoods caved in, but the radios are ruined, the radar detectors, the cages in the cars … We’re going to have to get the jaws of life up here to pry the trunks open and see about the rifles and shotguns.”
According to the police, damage is estimated to be about $250,000. Pion was held at the Northern State Correctional Center on $15,000 bail.
