Top 5 Ice Cream Truck Crimes of 2011

By Stephanie Rabiner, Esq. on January 04, 2012 5:52 AM

Ice cream truck drivers were not all that friendly in 2011 -- and neither were their customers. Ice cream truck crime was undoubtedly rampant last year, moving beyond the typical robbery.

Ice cream truck lovers were treated to tales of drunk ice cream men and violent customers. They learned of bizarre turf wars and prescription drug rings. And hopefully, they finally realized that ice cream trucks aren't necessarily for children.

Though ice cream truck crime occurred far and wide, it was these 5 stories that solidified its status as one of 2011's weirdest trends.

1. Ice Cream Truck Feud: Cops Tell Drivers Turf War Must Chill

Two grown men. Two ice cream trucks. One big road war.

2. Utah Woman Attacked Ice Cream Truck Driver Over High Prices

Industrial strength cleaner is one way to get rid of an ice cream stain...or an ice cream truck driver.

3. Drunk Ice Cream Man Had Bottles of Urine in Freezer

At least he didn't pee in the freezer?

4. Drunk Ice Cream Man Almost Hits Child, Cops Say

Whining kids would drive you to drink, too.

5. Ice Cream Truck Driver Sold Oxycodone Pills from His Truck

Treat the children and then treat the parents.

Though the ice cream truck turf war takes the list's top spot, it was actually Mr. Oxycodone that took the top punishment. He was later sentenced to 3 1/2 years for his ice cream truck crime. Authorities believe he sold approximately 43,000 pills out of his Lickety Split truck.
