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.

The Caledonian-Record reports (http://bit.ly/ULiq8d ) that a judge agreed to a hearing to determine how and where Pion will receive treatment. Prosecutors asked for another evaluation in 90 days.
