Man Takes Out Town With Armored Dozer


Marv Heemeyer was a welder and muffler repair shop owner who (outraged over the outcome of a zoning dispute) armored a Komatsu D355A bulldozer with layers of steel and concrete and used it on June 4, 2004, to demolish the town hall, a former judge's home, and other buildings in Granby, Colo. After a standoff with law enforcement agencies, Heemeyer committed suicide.
