The Vermont man who used his father's tractor to crush seven Orleans County Sheriff's vehicles has been found mentally incompetent and will receive treatment rather than face a criminal trial.

Roger Pion, 34, has been staying at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington. He was involuntarily committed to the custody of the Vermont commissioner of mental health.

A hospitalization hearing will next determine how and where Pion will receive treatment. In September, documents were filed with the court that suggested that Pion was suffering from mental instability and was being driven to action by voices in his head, reports the Caledonian-Record.

Maybe we should have an assault tractor ban. Maybe limit the horsepower to 10! Maybe only allow blue tractors to used for farming that can only accept a 10 hp engine, have the owner get a back ground check, have a 7 day waiting period, better reporting of mental heath issues, only allow one tractor purchase per month, allow only one attachment on it at a time and register his/her tractor with the federal government. Hey they want it for firearms why not tractors!
