Texas Man Gets Jail Time For Licking Ice Cream In Walmart
It was a stunt to get Facebook likes. Well now, D'Adrien Anderson's face is all over Facebook for all the wrong reasons.
According to ABC13, Anderson, 24, from Port Arthur, TX, was seen on a viral Facebook video last year licking the inside of a Blue Bell ice cream container, and putting it back in the freezer case. Anderson, who was with his father at the time, did purchase the ice cream, and even went back to the store to show his receipt. But by then, the damage was done.
Anderson was charged with criminal mischief in the incident. He also faces 30 days in jail, will be required to complete 100 hours of community service, and pay a fine of $1,000.
His jail sentence begins immediately.
He's not out of the woods just yet. It cost Blue Bell Creameries $1,565 to replace all of the ice cream in the freezer case. Now Anderson is responsible for paying Blue Bell that amount in restitution.
The Facebook stunt encouraged copycats, leading to other arrests across the state.
