Police issued an arrest warrant for a man in Southwest Texas who was seen on a viral video opening a container of Blue Bell ice cream in a Walmart and licking the contents before returning it to the freezer.
The arrest warrant was issued for a 24-year-old D’Adrien Anderson who authorities say posted social media video of himself licking ice cream.
Walmart’s surveillance cameras show that Anderson did eventually take the Blue Bell ice cream out of the freezer and buy it — which isn’t captured in the social media video.
However, Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham told KFDM-TV the store was forced to dump its Blue Bell ice cream at considerable cost.
“This guy loves publicity even if it’s for the wrong reason,” said Wortham. “That can lead to bigger and worse things. If we’re going to save this guy, we have to do it with this case or he’s over the hill.”
The warrant charges Anderson of criminal mischief, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
The incident happened Monday night at a Walmart in Port Arthur, Texas.
In July, cops busted a 17-year-old girl who licked a Blue Bell ice cream container and bragged about it on Instagram.
