Case smoked some pot after Crushing 7 police cars
NEWPORT, Vt. -- A Vermont man charged with driving a tractor over seven police vehicles and crushing them has been found incompetent to stand trial.
Roger Pion (PEE'-on), of Newport, had already been involuntarily committed to the custody of the state commissioner of mental health.
The 34-year-old Pion had faced multiple criminal counts after police say he drove his dad's tractor over six cruisers and a van at the county sheriff's department in Derby in August, causing about $300,000 in damage.
Police say he was angry over a previous arrest for marijuana possession. Pion pleaded not guilty.
