NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) - A judge has ordered a new psychiatric exam for a Vermont man accused of using a large tractor to crush several sheriffs' cruisers.
Roger Pion of Newport was found incompetent to stand trial and hospitalized in January. He's been at the Second Spring psychiatric facility in Williamstown.
The Caledonian-Record of St. Johnsbury reports that lawyers for the state and for Pion have agreed to have him evaluated again to determine if he's competent to stand trial.
The 35-year-old Pion faces several charges in an incident in which he allegedly used a large farm tractor to crush seven police cruisers parked outside the Orleans County Sheriffs' Department in Derby on Aug. 2, 2012.
