PORT ANGELES, Wash. (May 14, 2013)--A man who was unhappy with a neighbor's fence is accused of using a bulldozer to destroy three houses, damage another home and crush two sheds, a pickup truck, a lawn mower, fences and other property.
The rampage caused an estimated $300,000 in damage, but no one was injured, authorities said.
Barry Swegle, 51, was held Tuesday in lieu of $1 million bond, facing charges of assault and malicious mischief.
He was scheduled to appear Wednesday in Clallam County Superior Court.
Swegle had a dispute with a neighbor over a fence that he said made it difficult to maneuver the bulldozer and other heavy equipment he owns, authorities said.
