Responding to a concerned phone call, the Queens Chronicle accompanied Price and his muscle-bound driver on their route through Maspeth last Friday. The reporter witnessed the harassment first hand.

Although most of the afternoon was uneventful, around 4 p.m. the Mister Softee truck spotted Price and immediately pulled over. The driver was seen dialing a cell phone.
A few moments later, the Mister Softee driver approached Price’s Kool Man truck.
“What are you doing over here,” the driver asked aggressively. “This is my route.”
Price’s hired driver replied he wasn’t interested in the conversation.
“You don’t need to talk to me?” the Mister Softee driver said angrily. “You’ll be talking to my boss then.”
In these situations, Price explained, that “boss” often shows up in a green minivan to further harass him.
