State Police say 34-year-old Roger Pion was stopped by Newport city police in northern Vermont a short distance from where he allegedly crushed the Orleans County sheriff's vehicles Thursday before driving away on the tractor.
Sheriff's deputies were working inside their building and did not know what was happening on the parking lot until a neighbor called 911. They said they could not pursue the man because their cars were crushed. Sheriff Kirk Martin said no one was injured.
Pion now faces numerous new charges. He was in custody Thursday evening. Authorities did not know if he had a lawyer.
