The incident began when a Yogo truck pulled up near a Mister Softee rival at 50th St. and Sixth Ave. Mister Softee brought a sugar cone to a knife fight.
Two frozen treat slingers were arrested Wednesday after getting their licks in during a midtown turf war that could have become a stabbing, cops said.
The driver of a Mister Softee truck parked at 50th St. and Sixth Ave. became enraged when a Yogo truck pulled up just after 7 p.m., according to police.
The Mister Softee man ripped off the Yogo truck’s permit, and soon both drivers were squaring off, cops said. Then the Yogo driver pulled a knife, police said.
Cops arrived before either man was seriously creamed and both were arrested. They face a rocky road, with charges pending.
