Who knew ice cream could be so cut-throat? Well it happened in Gloversville, NY and netted the arrest of Joshua Malatino and his girlfriend Amy Scott.
Malatino owns 'Sno Cone Joe' in the hometown and took exception to 'Mr. Ding-A-Ling' taking to the streets to sell ice cream. Malatino and his girlfriend Amanda Smith repeatedly tailgated, verbally harassed, and threatened other ice cream sellers in the city. He even took to calling up Mr. Ding-A-Lings headquarters:
I own this town! [My] business controls the ice cream sales market in the city of Gloversville.
After repeated harassment, the pair were arrested and could go to jail for three months if convicted.
For the record, selling ice cream is perfectly legal in Gloversville as long as you get a permit.
