Gloversville (WSYR-TV) – The Albany-area couple who operated the Sno Cone Joe ice-cream truck, accused of stalking and harassing competitor Mr. Ding-A-Ling, are headed to state Supreme Court.The Albany Times Union reports
the city of Gloversville did not give Sno Cone Joe and its operators, Joshua Malatino and Amanda Scott of Gloversville, a new vendor permit when their old one expired.
Scott filed a petition with the city, according to the Times Union, and the city will be able to respond Wednesday.
Police say Malatino and Scott repeatedly followed the Mr. Ding-A-Ling truck in their Sno Cone Joe ice cream vehicle.
According to police, the pair played loud music and shouted that they had free ice cream in an effort to draw customers away.
On one occasion, police say Malatino shouted at the Mr. Ding-A-Ling truck that he controls the ice cream business in the city of Gloversville.
They were charged with harassment in the second degree, a violation, and stalking in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor.
Scott’s attorney told the Times Union that the charges are “baseless.”
