Backhoe Assailant

Aurora man charged in backhoe attack (reg req):

> A 65-year-old Aurora man was arrested Thursday after using his backhoe to smash a car trying to drive down the road in front of his Donald Road house.

> […]

> The driver of the car, Sheena Brown of Clackamas, and her four passengers said they were driving on Donald Road when they came upon a backhoe tractor blocking the road, he said.

> The man operating it, Schmidt, reportedly yelled at them and said they were trying to kill him. None of the car occupants knew Schmidt.

> He then allegedly began smashing the car with his backhoe bucket, breaking the windows and severely damaging the car, police said.

People around here get really squirrelly after a few months with little sun. But, you know … props to the mad backhoe assailant. He’s taken “You kids get outta my yard!” to a whole new level.
