BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) -A Bennington man is accused of crashing into a man’s house and trying to run him over with his truck after the victim says he refused to work on his Nazi tattoos.

Thirty-four-year-old Michael Myers pleaded not guilty Friday to attempted first-degree murder, leaving the scene of a crash, driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated assault on a police officer. He is being held without bail.

Thomas Keith told police that Myers had come to his house Tuesday night and asked him to add on to his Aryan Nation tattoos. When he refused, Keith told police Myers said he wanted to fight, drove onto his lawn, tried to run him over and crashed into the corner of his house, where his 1-year-old daughter had been sleeping.

Police say when they arrested Myers in a nearby camping trailer, he resisted and tried to kick one of the officers.www.benningtonbanner.com
