Washington Man Bulldozes Neighborhood Over Fence Dispute

"When push comes to shove, whose gonna win?" The bulldozer.

Barry Swegle, a Washington man, wreaked havoc in the small city of Port Angeles on Friday, after his brother, Jeff, says he grew incredibly frustrated over a fence a neighbor of his had installed.

The fence was preventing Barry from moving his logging equipment in and out of his property, and made Swegle “a ticking time bomb.”

And off he went. Swegle bulldozed four houses, a boat, a pickup truck and a power pole, knocking out power for thousands of area residents. Oh, and he bulldozed the fence.

“I knew he was capable of tearing the fence out,” his brother said, “Not the homes and the power pole. I didn’t think he was that mad.”

Swegle is being charged with two counts of first-degree assault and six counts of first-degree malicious mischief.
