Neighbor, upset with fence, bulldozes three homes
PORT ANGELES, Wash. — A man 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, lawn mower, fences and other property. No one was injured in the rampage that caused an estimated $300,000 damage. Barry Swegle, 51, is held on $1 million bail for possible charges of assault and malicious mischief. He is scheduled to appear Wednesday in Clallam County Superior Court when an arraignment may be set. The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/17pXpVk ) 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.
