‘Snow Rage’: Snow Plow Drivers Threatened With Guns, Police Say
There have been a few “snow rage” incidents in the Northeast this week, stemming from the issue of where all this snow should go.
Authorities say they have seen three cases of residents threatening snow plow drivers after plows dumped snow where they had already shoveled.
Pennsylvania police arrested 64-year-old Richard Eckert after he allegedly pressed a gun up to snow plow driver John Abraham’s cheek because Abraham accidentally pushed some snow into his yard during plowing.
There were two similar arrests in New York and Connecticut. On Long Island in New York, police say a man threatened a plow driver with a shotgun.
