Vermont Farmer crushes over half the cop cars in fleet with tractor


Police: Vt. farmer crushed cop cars with tractor

Authorities say a Vermont farmer angry over a recent arrest used a large tractor like a monster truck, destroying seven police cruisers parked outside a sheriff's office.


NEWPORT, Vt. —

Authorities say a Vermont farmer angry over a recent arrest used a large tractor like a monster truck, destroying seven police cruisers parked outside a sheriff's office.

Police say 34-year-old Roger Pion (PEE'-on) was taken into custody shortly after the episode Thursday afternoon outside the Orleans County Sheriff's Department in Newport. No one was injured.

Police say Pion was angry about his arrest last month on charges of resisting arrest and marijuana possession.

One witness estimates the tractor's rear tires were 15 feet high.

And wheels aren't 15 feet high.

“It was a massive tractor. It has four six-foot tandem wheels on the back. It was red. It must be at least a 15-ton tractor,” said Newport Express Publisher Ken Wells, who was at the scene.

7. That's not a tractor...THIS is a tractor

I guess if it doesn't have 15-ft wheels, it doesn't count.

btw, that link doesn't work, SKP.

10. I guess Bigfoot is NOT a myth, after all :)

That is a humongous tire! I hope you're not prone to road rage.

Thanks for the new link!
