The photos in these tweets from the Prince George Police Department are strikingly similar to those taken back in 2012 in Orleans county, Vermont.

Roger Pion, after being arrested for marijuana possession, took his father's tractor down to the station and demolished every vehicle in the lot, causing $300,000 in damages.

In October we reported that Pion was not prosecuted in the charges relating to that incident.
