The ice cream man always drives slow, but the swerving and especially the part where he almost crashed his truck into an oncoming police car certainly suggested ice cream wasn't the only treat Phillip Hollister had been dabbling in.
Hollister had a blood alcohol content of .15 when he was pulled over on Saturday night in the Fulton County town of Gloversville. Mr. Ding-A-Ling has fired him.
In April, Hollister was in the news when a turf war exploded between Mr. Ding-A-Ling and Sno Cone Joe. Hollister accused Joshua Malatino of harassing him and trying to take away his business. Hollister won that one.
