Angry Farmer gets revenge on cops for arresting him for marijuana possession


A man driving a farm tractor ran over eight vehicles in the parking lot of a Vermont police station in an apparent revenge scheme, according to local reports.

Police said Roger Pion, 34, of Newport, Vt., flattened seven marked police cruisers and one unmarked personal vehicle at the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department in Derby, Vt., around 12:40 p.m. Thursday.


“We came out and sure enough there was someone who had run over our cruisers with a tractor,” Chief Dep. Philip Brooks of the Orleans County Sheriff’s Dept. told WCAX.
Not only were their roofs and hoods caved in, but “the radios are ruined, the radar detectors, the cages in the cars … We’re going to have to get the jaws of life up here to pry the trunks open and see about the rifles and shotguns,” Sheriff Kirk Martin told the Associated Press.
With the vehicles crushed, police had no way to pursue Pion after he drove off in the tractor.


“It felt like I was in a Monster Jam rally or something,” witness Rene Morris told WCAX. “I just couldn’t believe it. He’s backing up, going over it, turns around, makes his way to the other vehicles smashes those up, did his business and headed right down Route 5.”


Police eventually caught up with Pion a mile and a half from the police station and arrested him. The motive is still under investigation, but witnesses believe Pion was angry about his recent arrest for marijuana possession and resisting arrest.


The damage is estimated to be about $250,000, according to police.
No one was injured. At least two deputies had gone inside a few moments before after washing their vehicles, officers said.

Brooks said the destroyed vehicles constituted more than half of the fleet of sheriff’s cruisers in the rural county on the Canadian border. The others were out on patrol. Since the incident, neighboring counties have offered their help.

“We have other county sheriff’s departments who are offering cruisers to us,” Brooks said. “We’ve already had one county that’s dropped one off to us and we’ve got two others that are on the way.”
It’s not known where Pion got the tractor but police said he comes from a farm family.


Pion was held at the Northern State Correctional Center in Newport in lieu of $15,000 bail.

He is expected to appear in Orleans County Criminal Court Friday to answer to seven counts of felony unlawful mischief, one count of misdemeanor unlawful mischief, one count of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, one count of gross negligent operation, and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.

  3. I have nothing but admiration for this guy. No-one was injured, only material objects were destroyed, and no material object has greater value than a person's freedom, freedom which is taken away daily by criminals dressed as police, lawyers, judges and politicians, for possession of a natural plant created by God. I feel my soul saluting yours, Roger.

    1. You forgot BANKERS. If you follow the right trail as to why every corrupt 'official', from lowly mayor, to the pres do what they do....at the finish line there will be a banker.
      The rest have become brainwashed puppets.
      But I DO agree with your comment.

  4. The cops don't care. Your tax dollar buys them brand new equipment and your tax dollar prosecutes the hero. Thats why the one cop is laughing!

    Learn your STATUTE RIGHTS and buy physical gold and silver. 2 of the best ways to fight the coming collapse.

  7. God Bless Him!!
    Its high time that people start standing up for their basic rights, like the right to peaceably possess a bit of plant flower. Imagine that, a farmer arrested for having dried flowers!!!
    This nation has went to Hades in a handbasket, despite the "crime" this man has helped a tiny bit to correct that.

  10. He shouldn't be charged with leaving the scene of an accident, because it wasn't an accident.

    1. I agree with you 100%, and if was me, that's exactly what I would argue in court. But I'm sure that charge will be used for his plea-bargain anyway.

  11. Great move, the only problem is that the taxpayer is going top end up paying the bill, However its nice to see a little pay back to government services at least once in a while.

  12. The taxpayer should foot the bill and feel the sting. Until the tax payer does their duty and holds their government accountable for crimes against the people, real patriots will be forced to take matters into their own hands.

  13. Those "Crown Vic's" are junk anyway and the new Impalas are garbage too.
    Give me a 94-96 Caprice/Impala and get outta the way. Talk about "roll on power" !
    Hell, I'll even take a Buick Road Master wagon or a Caprice wagon (94-96) - they all had Corvette motors.

    This guy needs a ballad written about him !
    I'd like to know more about the whole incident prior...

  14. The police have a budget and I'm sure they will only get a certain amount of money in damages for this, but I doubt they will get it all. If this happens again they might really be struggling to keep there cars and might have to walk on foot for once! lol

  17. Good for the farmer. I don't blame him. These arrogant brutes deserve it. I love it.

    I hope he gets a decent lawyer and the jury lets him off.

  18. Too bad the cars weren't full of cops.

  19. Wow what a bunch of idiots. "Hero"? You mean coward. Why not stand up to the law and fight it in court, join a legalize movement... not stupidly destroy hundreds of thousands of TAX payer property. You know those cops used those cars and equiptment to patrol their area to protect HIM and his family from theifs, murderers, rapists, and general low life's like yourselves. But nooooo, a stupid misdemeanor charge and sally here has to go all ape shit and ultimately get into 1000x more trouble.

    1. With THAT tractor, that was definitely NOT 'ape shit'.
      Let's call it expensive stupid comedy. Even though, I have to agree with your sentiments about the taxpayers isn't too funny.
      I wouldn't call him a hero by any means, but I don't disagree with what he did, and the motive behind it.
      You even said yourself...
      " a stupid misdemeanor charge".

  20. This happened at least 8 months ago, maybe more. I remember reading about it somewhere.
    But, I wouldn't have tried to stop him, even if I were able to, as long as noone was in any of the cruisers, and if that is all he was going after.
    Of course, I'd kick myself in the ass afterward if I lived there, because now, taxes from the people there have to pay for replacements.
    Catch-22 I suppose.*shrug*

  21. I wonder what happened at when they arrested him for the marijuana

  22. Bahaha! Loving the comments! Keep 'm coming! Oooh its the taxpayers money! Pffft, don't complain if you're stupid enough to let yourself be fleeced of your own good hard working money! I thought the report was hilarious! Good on him. Though I dont condone crime (yes, I believe paying tax is.a.criminal offence), the man obviously.thought he.was justified in his.actions, he was doing his.own thing and some thugs arrested him for it, he believed in.retaliation, it.was fair play! :P
