Texas Man Goes To Jail For 30 Days For Video Of Himself Licking Ice Cream Tub In Store

PORT ARTHUR, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A 24-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail for posting on social media a video last August of himself removing an ice cream container from a Texas market freezer, licking the contents and returning the container to the freezer.

D'Adrien Anderson was also sentenced to an additional six-month jail term probated for two years and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $1,565 in restitution to Blue Bell Creameries, which had to replace all of its products in the freezer.

Anderson began serving his jail term immediately after sentencing.

The incident happened August 26, 2019 at a Walmart in Port Arthur.

Store surveillance cameras showed that he finally took the Blue Bell ice cream from the freezer and bought it, which wasn't captured in the social media video, authorities said.

Anderson could have been sentenced to up to a year in jail and fined $4,000 for misdemeanor criminal mischief.
