Vernon Logan Attacked Snow Plow With Ax: Alaska State Troopers

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Alaska State Troopers say a man apparently angry that a snow berm was blocking his car is accused of attacking a snowplow with an ax.

Snowplow driver James Ross told troopers that a man with an ax ran in front of his truck in Big Lake on Nov. 6. Ross says he was forced to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting the man.

Ross says the man swore at him and then hit the driver's side door of the plow truck with the ax.

Before the villain could take a swing at Ross himself, he drove off.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the man was later identified as 44-year-old Vernon Logan.

Troopers say Logan told them his driveway had been plowed in, but he denied a confrontation took place. However, Logan's father told police his son got into an altercation. While cops hauled away Logan, the suspect yelled at his father, the Daily News said.

He was charged with assault and criminal mischief. THINK THAT'S CRAZY? CHECK OUT THESE MUGSHOTS OF OTHER PEOPLE CHARGED WITH DUMB CRIMES:
