ST. LOUIS (AP) — An Easter encounter between two feuding ice cream truck drivers in St. Louis County led to a police citation and a neighborhood of disbelieving observers.

KTVI-TV reports that one driver cut off the other one, threatened his co-worker and started to damage his truck, music siren and merchandise. County police cited the driver for disturbing the peace and referred the case to county prosecutors. The encounter happened Sunday afternoon near the intersection of Parker Road and Highway 367.

A company spokesman says the incident is under review.

    I wish these ice cream trucks would become extinct. They are wasting so much energy to sell kids more sugar and fat that they don’t really need. The ice cream is overpriced and not all that good anyway. If people stop doing business with these ice cream trucks, they will eventually disappear. Besides, after I saw one of the drivers taking a p in a bottle in the grocery store parking lot, I decided I didn’t want them touching my food.
