Texas Blue Bell Licker Pleads Guilty In Court
We were all traumatized last summer when folks were doing the unthinkable: licking Blue Bell ice cream and placing it back on the shelves.
It was a viral video challenge of sorts and it seemed to be happening mostly in our great state of Texas. Some folks are still at large, while some have been caught. One perpetrator who was caught has pleaded guilty in court.
FOX News reports that D' Adrien Anderson, commonly known as "Dapper Don" on Facebook, pleaded guilty on January 16th. He faces up to a year behind bars and a maximum fine of $4,000.
D'Adrien uploaded a 20-second video of himself removing the tub of homemade vanilla ice cream from the freezer aisle of the store before opening and licking the dessert multiple times, sticking his finger in it, then putting it back on the store shelf with the lid reattached back in August.
The 24-year-old is asking for a lighter punishment since he went back and purchased the ice cream after filming the video. After 157,000 views on the video, there's no denying he committed the crime to the court. Now he's at the judge's mercy. He better hope the judge is more of a Ben & Jerry's guy.
