Thirty-four-year-old Roger Pion of Newport pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to 14 criminal charges.
Orleans County sheriffs said Pion was angry over a recent arrest for resisting arrest and marijuana possession when he drove the tractor into the parking lot of the sheriff’s department and rolled it multiple times across the cruisers and a transport van parked in the lot. No one was injured.
Pion’s been held on $50,000 bail since his arrest on Thursday.
WCAX-TV reports that since then, donations have been coming to help Pion. Pion’s lawyer, David Sleigh, says the contribution will go toward litigation costs.
