Police were told that a woman was throwing snow from her property onto the pile in her neighbour's yard. The man allegedly asked her to stop but was met with rude comments and gestures. 

"The neighbour reportedly approached the woman who raised her snow shovel at him," wrote Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey. "The woman was allegedly pushed to the ground by her neighbour to avoid being hit by the shovel."

At this point, the matter is still under investigation.
