A little trash talk turned violent in Brooklyn.
Like many others this Earth Week, Sanitation Dept. worker Randolph Garcia, 45, was picking up trash. He allegedly grew angry when he caught another man tossing rubbish into the back of his truck.
The men exchanged words, and Garcia then grabbed a shovel and whacked the man in the head, according to the NYPD.
The victim is okay; he was being treated at Brookdale Hospital, authorities said.
Garcia has been charged with assault.
