The attack came after the boy berated and cursed Didiano over the cost of his cones.
"I wanted to tell him I didn't appreciate being talked to like that," said Didiano, who denied punching the boy.
Zottola ruled he did not believe Didiano and convicted him of simple assault. In addition to the probation, Didiano must take anger management classes and reimburse the teenager $20 for damage to his bike.
The teen giggled as Didiano recounted the obscenities directed at him.
Didiano, who worked for Paul's Ice Cream Co., served up his own frosty insults.
"I told him he didn't need any ice cream anyway because he's fat," said Didiano.
The teen, about 5-foot-5 and 140 pounds, responded by calling Didiano a "bald (expletive) ripoff." Didiano later attacked when he found the boy sitting on a bike two blocks away.
