UNIVERSITY PARK — A manager at Penn State's Berkey Creamery was repeatedly called and harassed by a person because “Peachy Paterno” ice cream is still being sold at the store, State College police said today.
Police said the manager had remarks made about his religious faith and was called a “pedophile enabler” and various profane names.
The caller was issued a citation and will be fined, police said.
The ice cream is named for the late Joe Paterno, who was linked to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal through the Freeh report, which said the football coach and other Penn State officials knew about abuse allegations and covered them up.
Officials from the Creamery, located on campus, have said proceeds from the sale of the ice cream flavor will be donated to an organization that works with the issue of child sexual abuse.
