Roger Pion, 34, flattened seven police cars with a farm tractor at the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department in Derby, Vermont, according to NBC News.

“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 Deptartment, told WCAX.

Apparently, Pion was upset about his arrest for marijuana possession and the charge of resisting arrest that followed, the Associated Press reported

"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,” said Sheriff Kirk Martin, according to the Associated Press.

"I felt like I was in a monster jam rally or something," said Rene Morris, who saw it happen, WCAX reported. "I just couldn't believe it, just backing up going over it, turns around makes his way to the other vehicles smashes those up."
