WASHINGTON (AP) - Police in the nation’s capital say a school crossing guard stabbed a driver of a van for people with disabilities over a parking dispute.

News outlets report 31-year-old Reginald Wilson has been arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Police say the D.C. Department of Transportation guard stabbed the MetroAccess van driver Wednesday near Langley Elementary School after the two argued about the driver’s parking.

Citing a police report, The Washington Post says the two argued about the driver parking the van “on the opposite side of the street during restricted school traffic hours.” WJLA-TV says the driver had parked in a crosswalk to pick up riders.

The driver was treated for injuries not considered to be life threatening. It’s unclear if Wilson has a lawyer.
