Man Damages 4 Washington Homes With Bulldozer


A Clallam County man angry at his neighbors went on a rampage with a bulldozer Friday, damaging four homes, knocking one off its foundation and cutting power to thousands of people, authorities said.

…A “highly agitated” Barry Alan Swegle, 51, was booked into the Clallam County Jail for investigation of first-degree malicious mischief, a class B felony, Borte said.

…A neighbor named Phil Riley said a disagreement over a property line had been escalating for a long time between Swegle and Dan Davis, whose two properties were severely damaged, according to the Peninsula Daily News.


First-degree malicious 'mischief'?? Interesting categorisation for the offense.

If I had a penny for every time I have wanted to indulge in such 'mischief'… Sigh.

Then I guess you'd be counting those pennies behind bars under the federal eye! :P
