Apparently it’s a hard life being Mr. Ding-A-Ling. The operators of a rival truck called Sno Cone Joe were arrested in Gloversville, NY (in the Albany region) after their competition turned nasty.
It turns out that Josh Malatino and his girlfriend Amanda Scott were stalking and harassing Mr. Ding-A-Ling by playing their music louder, and yelling at Mr. Ding-A-Ling’s customers that their ice cream was free. Wait? Free ice cream? How is that a crime? Apparently it is one when you are using your ice cream truck to stalk a competitor. Both were arrested for 2nd-degree harassment and stalking in the 4th degree after Mr. Ding-A-Ling filed a complaint.
What they should be arrested for though is playing that annoying music, especially the truck in my neighborhood that has that stupid HELLO voice in-between the music. One year in jail for each HELLO that stupid truck says.
