ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI)-- An apparent turf feud between two ice cream truck drivers leads to a citation from police and a review from the drivers` company.

St. Louis County Police say one driver cut off the other one, threatened him and started to damage his truck, music siren and merchandise.  Police responded to the meltdown Sunday afternoon near Parker Rd and Highway 367.

A company spokesman said the drivers were not allowed to deliver ice cream Monday because the company is reviewing what happened.  The spokesman said appropriate action would be taken once all the facts are known.

The driver, who says he was the victim, tells FOX 2 he`s had the same route for 7 years.  He claims the other driver was trying to cut in on his business.  Both drivers work for the same company.

St. Louis County Police cited on driver for disturbing the peace.  That citation is subject to review by the St. Louis County Counselor`s office.  That process can take more than a week.
