Butte Police Reports
Just take a ride
At around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, Claudia Patricia Campodonico, 43, of Butte decided it was a good idea to get on a construction machine, a Volvo vibratory road roller, and try it out.
She was only about 500 feet from Cinz Bar when officers heard her say to another woman as she jumped off the compactor, “I told you I could drive that (expletive)!”
Although she told officers she was just “messing around”, she was arrested for felony motor vehicle theft and misdemeanor driving under the influence (first offense).
The compactor, which weighs approximately 24,000 pounds, suffered no damage.
