Dear law enforcement types - If I haven't said this lately - thank you.

On Saturday, in Oceana County (north of Muskegon), a man got on his tractor, went to his ex-wife's house, threatened her - and then made the decision to get back on his front-loader and flip her car  with the bucket (I'm assuming he had a bucket- I wasn't there)

According to, he then made his escape home via his tractor. That's where Oceana County sheriff's deputies caught up with him. And that's when he pulled out his loaded crossbow and threatened the deputies.

It all ended OK. A Michigan State Police negotiator talked to him until the suspect decided to give up. He's in the lock-up now.

Here's the story - with photos of the flipped car. This is why you buy insurance.
