PORT ANGELES, Wash. -- Witnesses say a man upset with his neighbors went on a rampage with a bulldozer-like piece of logging machinery in a Port Angeles neighborhood, damaging four homes and knocking out power to thousands of people.
The Clallam County Sheriff's Office says it does not appear that anyone was injured during the incident that happened just after noon Friday along Pioneer Road. The suspect was arrested.
"A person with a piece of heavy equipment that was very upset, struck (four) homes in the area and also a truck," said Jim Borte with the Clallam County Sheriff's Department.
Keith Haynes lives near one of the damaged homes and told the Peninsula Daily News the man took a piece of logging equipment called a skidder and "just went nuts."
Haynes said a woman inside one of the homes escaped unharmed, and the other home was unoccupied. Haynes said the houses were demolished.
Haynes said a new Ford truck also was damaged in the incident.
It was like a war zone, Haynes, a former law enforcement officer who has lived in that neighborhood for two years, told the paper.
Here also is a report from The Peninsula Daily News, a local paper serving Washington's Olympic Peninsula, where Port Angeles is located:
now THAT is an opus!
Time to require a background check for bulldozers and limit them to 7 somethings or other.
lol and here i was saying just the other day the things ya see when ya aint got yer bulldozer
I would have just shot his dumb arse.
That'll buff out.
That’ll buff out.
Ban bulldozers..if it can save one house from being demolished by a nutcase it will be worth it..for the children
Dang, I hope he wasn’t a Tea Partier.
It’s time to develop plans for 3-D printed bulldozers for when they ban them.
Note to reporter. That is so ‘bulldozer-like’ it IS a bulldozer.
I thought he was talking about a Skidder till I saw the pix...
Don’t even piss off a heavy equipmet operator! I have had those thoughts but never acted on them! Esp when the home builder stiffs you for 10k!
Music too loud?
I knew of a man that had a wrecker service business and his daughter’s boyfriend beat her up so bad, she ended up in hospital. Well...this man found the dude’s truck at some bar but could not find the dude, so he hooked up his truck and dragged it up and down the highway until it was literally shredded.....lol.
So does homeowner insurance cover this ?
Ok, that's four.
Haynes said a woman inside one of the homes escaped unharmed, and the other home was unoccupied.
Well, that accounts for two of the four.
Did the other two just evaporate or something?
This occurred about 4 miles from my house. My power was out for about an hour.
I know this lowlife jerk and his family. Word is....he was upset because he couldn’t get help for his meth problems. Well, he is going to get all the help he can handle now. LOL
But for the grace of God, nobody was killed in during this tantrum.
IT'S THE PEOPLE, STUPID. "Gun control" is something only dumbass Nazis do. It should never be allowed to happen in America.
