Oregon ice cream truck driver gets DUI on the job

CORNELIUS, Ore. (AP) — Sheriff's Deputies in Cornelius arrested an ice cream truck operator on drunk driving charges while he was selling ice cream to children.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says a resident on Friday evening reported that an ice cream truck was driving erratically. The caller said the ice cream truck drove into oncoming traffic and twice hit a curb.

Deputies arrested the driver, 38-year-old Noe Andrade Silva, as he was selling ice cream to kids out of his music-playing van. Deputies say Silva had been driving around and selling ice cream under the influence of alcohol.

Silva was lodged in the Washington County Jail on $2,500 bail. A court date has not yet been set.
