PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — Damage is estimated at $300,000 at a subdivision near Port Angeles where a man destroyed three houses with a bulldozer, damaged another home and crushed two sheds, a pickup truck, lawn mower, fences and other property in a dispute with a neighbor.
No one was injured in Friday's rampage, and 51-year-old Barry Swegle is held on $1 million bail for possible charges of assault and malicious mischief. He's due in Clallam County Superior Court on Wednesday when an arraignment may be set.
