iStockphoto/Thinkstock(PORT ANGELES, Wash.) — A man police described as “upset” got in a bulldozer and rammed into homes, cars and telephone poles in Port Angeles, Wash. on Friday.

The driver of the bulldozer, who has not been identified by police yet, reportedly demolished two homes, damaged a truck and downed power lines. Clallam County Sheriff’s Spokesman Jim Borte says there are about 400 homes and buildings without power because of his rampage.

Luckily, no one was injured.

There full extent of the damage is not known yet, in part because it’s hard for officials to get to the neighborhood damaged during the incident.

“Because of the downed power lines, we’re not able to get into the area where the incident took place,” explained Borte.

The driver of the bulldozer will likely face more charges once the incident is investigated further.

“We’re holding him on malicious mischief,” said Borte, “but I am sure we’ll probably be looking at potentially some other charges as well.”
