Man Drives Backhoe Into TWO Bars

Tue Feb 12, 2002 9:08 am

Byron Man Arrested in Backhoe Rampage
2/08/02
The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office reports today that investigators are still trying to figure out why a 42-year-old man allegedly used a backhoe to plow into two taverns on Byron's Main Street.

Sgt. Ken Hansen now identifies the man arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism in the incident as Daniel Adona of Byron. Authorities earlier today misspelled the man's name.

Adona allegedly used the backhoe around 6:31 p.m. Thursday to damage two taverns that are separated by a small open field, authorities said. Adona was taken into custody without incident.

No injuries were reported but both structures sustained heavy damage.

"There are still structures standing, but based on the significant damage done to both, I'd deem them totaled,'' Hansen said. Several natural gas lines were severed in the incident, forcing the evacuation of nearby homes.

Hansen said Adona is "well known'' in the Byron community. The motive for the alleged backhoe attack is unknown. Hansen said authorities have not yet confirmed who owns the backhoe.

Oops, I forgot to comment on this one.

Would have been more interesting if the headline had been "Man drives back ho into two bars."
