NEWPORT (AP) - A Vermont man accused of crushing seven sheriffs' vehicles with a farm tractor is scheduled for trial in June.
Police say 35-year-old Roger Pion of Newport was angry about an earlier arrest for marijuana possession when he drove his father's tractor over six police cruisers and a transport van owned by the Orleans County Sheriffs' Department in 2012. Officials said that caused about $300,000 in damage.
Pion at one point was deemed incompetent to stand trial and was hospitalized in January, according to reports. A later evaluation found him to be competent.
Pion has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
