An ice cream man is getting a chilly reception from police.

Marshall Gene Beasley, 27, was arrested Wednesday on charges of selling marijuana along with his frosty fare.

“This is a guy going down neighborhood streets who’s around and near children,” said David McGriff, drug task force director. “I’m not saying he sold to children, but we bought marijuana from him while he was operating the ice cream truck.”

The company Beasley worked for will get back the truck and its stock because there’s no evidence the business knew of his alleged activities.
