You know that guy who was on video licking Blue Bell ice cream and putting it back on the shelf at a Port Author Walmart? Well, that man has been sentenced and he's getting 30 days in jail and 180 days of probation.
He probably won't do much ice cream licking in jail, just sayin...
He will also be responsible for 100 hours of community service.
No word on if he's getting a job as an ice cream flavor tester, but I would think that won't quite work out.
The news of his sentencing was posted by KWTX:
The Port Arthur man charged after posting a video of himself licking ice cream in a Blue Bell carton at a Walmart store was sentenced to 30 days in jail and 180 days probation, the Port Arthur News reports.
Judge Terrance Holmes sentenced 24-year-old D'Adrien Anderson, also required to complete 100 hours of community service.
But wait! There's more!
Anderson is also required to pay a fine and restitution to Blue Bell Creameries as a result of this ice cream shelving debacle.
As a condition of probation, Anderson is also required to pay a fine of $1000 and restitution in the amount of $1,565 to Blue Bell Creameries, the district attorney said.
Police say Anderson posted social media video of himself licking ice cream from a carton in Texas and then returning it to a supermarket freezer.
Did you know that Anderson was facing up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine? Sounds like he got off easy.
You know, this is pretty gross to be licking things at the store. Heck, it's gross to lick things in general. Keep that thing in your mouth!
Anderson was arrested on a warrant charging criminal mischief, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
The incident happened late in 2019 at a Walmart in Port Arthur.
Authorities say store surveillance cameras showed that the man finally took the Blue Bell ice cream out of the freezer and bought it, which wasn't captured in the social media video.
The Walmart was forced to dump its Blue Bell ice cream at "considerable cost," the district attorney said.
Oh man, so all that ice cream was gone all because of a few inconsiderate licks.
Who wants to bet that someone took those Blue Bell ice creams home when the manager wasn't looking!
They probably said, "he didn't lick this one!!"
