Roger Pion, a Vermont man who authorities say was angry over an arrest and used his tractor to drive over seven police vehicles on Thursday, is expected in court today.

According to police, Pion, 34, was on a big farm tractor, angry about his arrest for resisting arrest and marijuana possession last month, when he was rolling across their vehicles – five marked cruisers, one unmarked car and a transport van.

Orleans County sheriff’s deputies working inside their building on Thursday didn’t know what was happening until a neighbor called 911. They didn’t hear the ruckus outside because their air conditioners were humming.

When police ran outside, the tractor was already down the driveway and out onto the road. Police said they couldn’t pursue the man because their cars were crushed.
