East Texas Man Arrested for Allegedly Licking Ice Cream in Walmart Store
[BREITBART] A Facebook prank landed an East Texas man in county jail after he allegedly opened a gallon of Blue Bell ice cream, licked it, and returned it to the shelf. While he accomplished his goal of a viral video, the prank has cost him criminal charges and his job.
A Facebook video earlier this week shows a man opening a gallon of Blue Bell ice cream, licking the ice cream, closing it up, and placing it back on the shelf. Police began investigating and identified the Walmart store in Port Arthur, Texas, as the incident location. Surveillance video showed the man eventually took the ice cream back out of the freezer and paid for it, the News Agency that Dare Not be Named reported.
Despite this, Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham filed misdemeanor criminal mischief charges after the Walmart store was forced to re-stock their ice cream shelves in case of other contamination. Police identified the suspect as 24-year-old D’Adrien Anderson, a Port Arthur resident, and place him in the Jefferson County Correctional Facility. He eventually posted a bond of $1,000 and was released.
