Vt. man accused of crushing cop cars with tractor found incompetent to stand trial
Pion, of Newport, had already been involuntarily committed to the custody of the state Commissioner of Mental Health.
The 34-year-old Pion 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 2012, causing about $300,000 in damage.
Police said he was angry over a previous arrest for marijuana possession. Pion pleaded not guilty.
The Caledonian-Record reports a judge agreed to a hearing to determine how and where Pion will receive psychiatric treatment. Prosecutors asked for another evaluation in 90 days.
