Ice-cream man takes aim and shoots at customer after a fiery debate.
OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - An Oklahoma ice cream man opened fire on a customer after a summer ice cream sale turned sour, police said on Tuesday.
Police in Enid, about 75 miles north of Oklahoma City, said they arrested Markus Miller, 29, an ice cream truck driver for Summer Song, on Sunday on
two misdemeanor charges as well as a felony charge of pointing a firearm.
If convicted, Miller could receive up to 10 years in jail on the felony charge.
According to police, an 18-year-old woman approached Miller's ice cream truck and the conversation degenerated into a heated argument.
Miller is suspected of taking out a pistol and firing two shots at the feet of the woman. She was struck on the collarbone-area by either a bullet
fragment or debris from the shots, police said.
Miller was arrested in his ice cream truck a short distance from the incident and police recovered a hand gun from the vehicle, they said.
"It is not a normal or legal thing, anywhere in the country to carry a handgun without a permit while selling ice cream," said Sgt. Eric Holtzclaw,
a spokesman with the Enid Police Department.

This is scary. Who could have imagined the ice cream guy being a serial killer. In a countries thats in high alert, just makes people cautious.
The ice cream guys carrying a gun. OMFG Some people are taking the war on terror into their own hands. But in instances such as this the hardest
thing to do while in possession of a gun is to not use it. You need that control, which needless to say the ice cream guy had none.
Michael Moores bowling for columbine south park like anime clip clearly demonstrates whats happening. Americans are killing Americans.
In a place of high alert is this really a surprise??? The ice cream guy obviously has no faith in Bush in controlling the terror attacks. Why else
would he carry a gun???
