      Mass. man accused of 'snow rage'

      Douglas Haskell

      A Lakeville man is accused of striking a neighbor with a shovel in a disagreement over snow.

      Douglas Haskell was arraigned Tuesday in Wareham District Court on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was released on personal recognizance.

      Lakeville police arrested Haskell Saturday night.

      According to the police report, a resident was driving through Churchill Road with a plow attached to his truck. The road is narrow, and some snow wound up in Haskell's yard and driveway.

      Police said Haskell hit the plow driver with his shovel, leaving a cut above the driver's eye.

      A representative of the neighborhood association said it's never experienced this kind of violence before.

      Haskell was scheduled to appear in court again March 27.
