No good humor in frosty Pa. frozen treat feud

May 27, 2011 - 1:27 PM

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Police are hoping the threat of losing their permits will be enough to thaw the frosty relationship of two Pennsylvania ice cream truck drivers accused of trying to run each other off the road.

The Herald-Standard of Uniontown reports police told the rival vendors to chill out after a dispute Wednesday night.

Authorities say the wife of one vendor told police the other man tried to run her husband off the road.

The implicated ice cream driver disputes the woman's account, saying it was her husband who tried to force him off the road. He also claimed the man had returned his good humored hello by shouting an expletive.

Patrolman Thomas Kolencik says he warned both drivers the city could explore revoking their permits if they can't get along.
