Licking Ice Cream Viral Video
A Texas man filmed in a viral video licking a pint of ice cream and returning it to the shelf in a Walmart was sentenced to 30 days behind bars, according to a report.
The clip — which didn’t show the part where he ultimately purchased the pint — racked up more than 157,000 views on Facebook before it was taken down.
The video was posted online in August, and in January, Anderson pleaded guilty to criminal mischief. Anderson told police he licked the ice cream as a prank and later went back and bought the carton.
Anderson did buy the carton, police have said, but the Walmart replaced its entire inventory of ice cream. Jefferson County officials were not impressed by the prank.
Charges and Arrested
Cops issued an arrest warrant for Anderson after Blue Bell Creameries replaced all of the ice cream in that display case at a cost of $1,565.
Anderson must also pay a fine of $1,000, on top of restitution totaling $1,565 to Blue Bell, as well as serving 180 days probation and 100 hours of community service.
The local Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office defended the charges as “appropriate.”

“Anderson’s actions caused public concerns about the safety and quality of consumer products offered for public consumption, impacted Blue Bell consumer confidence and caused the company financial loss,” the office said. “This type of activity will not be tolerated.”
The office said any similar case will be taken seriously and charges will be filed. Blue Bell is a beloved Texas-based ice cream company.
Amid the viral Blue Bell-licking trend, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott hailed police for tracking down another teen who did the stunt and warned “Don’t Mess With Texas… or with Blue Bell.”
Port Arthur is a city of around 55,000 south of Beaumont, near the Louisiana border.
