Arrest Warrant Issued in Ice Cream-Licking Incident in Port Arthur, Texas
Well, it looks like the ice cream-licking "phenomenon" has not died...yet.
Police in Port Arthur, Texas have issued an arrest warrant for a 24-year-old man who posted a video on social media of himself licking ice cream from a carton and then returning it to a supermarket freezer shelf.
The warrant charges D'Adrien Anderson of criminal mischief, which is a misdemeanor and punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
The alleged incident happened on Monday night at a Walmart in Port Arthur (which is about 85 east of Houston).
Store surveillance cameras show the man take the carton of Blue Bell ice cream out of the freezer and buy it, which isn't captured in the social media video. But he would later lick the ice cream and return it to the store shelf.
Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham told KFDM-TV that the store was forced to dump its Blue Bell ice cream at a considerable cost.
