A farmer who was arrested last month expressed his displeasure Thursday afternoon in Newport, Vt., by driving a heavy tractor over seven police vehicles owned by the Orleans County Sheriff's Department, authorities said.

Five of the damaged vehicles were fully marked red, white and black cruisers, and two were unmarked, including a transport van. An eighth car, belonging to the department bookkeeper, was pushed out of the way by the tractor in an effort to get at the cruisers. It had minor damage.
