Besides police call-outs to several car accidents, heavy snowfall on Friday the 13th also led the Trail RCMP to a fight over snow shoveling.
At 4:30 p.m. Nov. 13, Greater Trail officers responded to a verbal dispute between two neighbours who were clearing snow on their properties along Columbia Avenue in Trail.
Police were told that one resident was throwing snow from her property onto her neighbour’s snow pile located on his property.
Her neighbour asked her to stop but was met with rude comments and gestures by the woman, according to the Trail RCMP’s Tuesday news brief.
The neighbour is reported to have approached the woman who raised her snow shovel at him.
The woman was allegedly pushed to the ground by her neighbour to avoid him being hit by the shovel.
The matter is still under investigation.
Any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police are asked to contact the Trail RCMP.
