UNIONTOWN, Pa. — An ice cream truck driver is behind bars in southeastern Pennsylvania after he allegedly broke into his boss's home and attacked him with a baseball bat.

State police say 29-year-old Bernard Geisel had argued with the truck's owner over money before using the bat to smash his way into the man's Uniontown home late Tuesday.

Investigators say the victim, George Swaney, was able to wrestle the bat away from Geisel and pin him down until police arrived.

Geisel was arraigned Tuesday on charges including burglary and simple assault. He is being held at Fayette County Prison on $25,000 bail.

Last week, Geisel and another ice cream truck driver were given verbal warnings by Uniontown police after an altercation.

Uniontown is about 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
