A man has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief after posting a video of himself licking Blue Bell ice cream and putting it back on the freezer shelf in a Port Arthur, Texas Walmart. 24 year-old D’Adrien Anderson, who calls himself “Dapper Don” on Facebook, posted the video to the social media site, gaining over 100,000 views.
The store alleges all Blue Bell ice cream was replaced following the incident, resulting in monetary loss. Surveillance footage shows Anderson later returned to the freezer and purchased the ice cream.
The trend of ice cream licking has unfortunately caught the attention of those seeking instant fame online. A teenage girl was identified by police last month after a video of her licking ice cream went viral.
The ice cream-licker has posted $1,000 bond and was released Friday morning.
After multiple videos of people tonguing down America’s favorite dessert, the real question lies in – When will ice cream companies start being required to put protective seals on their products?
