The Girl Who Licked a Tub Of Blue Bell Ice Cream and Put It Back Has Been Identified By Police
Country LivingJuly 17, 2019
A tweet circulated from a since-deleted Instagram account @xx.asiaaa.xx, taking pride in the stunt. "Yeah, I really did that," xx.asiaaa.xx allegedly commented. "You can call it Flu Bell ice cream now 'cause I was a little sick last week." She also suggested others follow her licking lead, "Let’s start an epidemic (literally)."
Over the weekend, Lufkin, TX, police identified the minor in the offending video, but they will not release her name, per CBS News. She’s reportedly from the San Antonio area and could have been charged with second-degree felony tampering and up to 20 years in prison, if not for her juvenile status. In a statement, Blue Bell said, “Our staff recognized the (Walmart) location in the video, and we inspected the freezer case.” The company also said they believe they “may have recovered the half gallon that was tampered with,” however, to be certain, all Tin Roof gallons were removed from that location.
Somebody posted about this upthread but I was hoping it wasn't true.
Mom Is Arrested After Daughter Licks and Puts Back Tongue Depressor at Doctor’s Office
Apparently, it was all part of a bizarre social media trend.

A Florida mom has been arrested after posting a video of her daughter licking a tongue depressor at a doctor’s office, WJXX reports. The footage, which went viral before being removed, apparently stems from a “licking challenge” viral trend.
Last week, 30-year-old Cori E. Ward shared a clip of her daughter inside an exam room, licking a tongue depressor and putting it back. A sign above the jar of tongue depressors reads “PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THE MEDICAL SUPPLIES! THANK YOU!” Ward captioned the Snapchat video: “Don’t tell me how to live my life."
Authorities quickly got wind of the clip and arrested Ward. She was then charged with one count of tampering with a consumer product without regard for possible death or injury. On Friday, a Duval County court judge set her bond at $2,500 and instructed Ward to avoid contact with the doctor’s office and don’t post on social media. The medical center later said they “immediately removed all materials and containers” from the exam room.
Ward’s video follows a string of similar “prank” clips in which people lick various items. Last month the #IceCreamChallenge grew wildly popular, showing participants in stores opening ice cream containers, licking the top, and putting them back. Such challenges are typically executed for views, but Ward insists she wasn’t participating in anything like this.
“The video doesn’t show that the items were thrown away or anything else that happened,” the mother wrote on her since-deleted Facebook page. “I posted this on my personal Snapchat with my 20-something friends, where someone allowed another person to view it. I didn’t post it on Facebook or YouTube as a challenge or whatever.”
Regardless of whether Ward’s actions were part of a challenge, these antics are not only straight-up unsanitary but potentially dangerous.
Right and if that friend hadn't shown someone else she would have gotten away with it. Doubtful that she threw the thing away after. Why don't people understand that tampering with products that other people use is a safety hazard. Not only is it just plain old wrong and disgusting but it is against the law. They won't learn until someone out here with an unknown rare disease does something like this and it sweeps across an entire city.
I didn’t read the whole thread.
Did y’all see the one where the guy took a Listerine bottle off the shelf, gargled and spit it back in the bottle and put back on shelf?
We have to be very vigilant nowadays. Somebody invent a tool where you can scan items and make sure that they haven’t been opened or contaminated with human waste.
Remember the guy that had folks sampling some food in the grocery store with his semen in it.
I’m glad I don’t like ice cream. Gotta warn my DH who’s an ice cream fanatic.
This is my stop. Bye y’all.
I don't know why I keep coming back in here.
Social media is frying everyone's common sense. Nearly anything can be posted to influence. Why BP of all people being brainwashed is amazing.
I went to see the movie Van Wilder when it was out. There was a scene where Ryan Reynolds served "cream" filled donuts full of semen to the evil frat bro's in that movie. I have not watched another Ryan Reynolds movie except Blade 3 since.
I know he didn't do it forreal. That's just how strongly I feel about people putting bodily fluids in food.
I remember semen dude! The woman he gave the sample to recognized the taste right away and called the police. I hope that she received a large settlement from the store that hired the pervert.
I guess I'm old. Is this supposed to be funny?
Welp...I'm here with my own addition.
I hate the whole world.
Of all the things to imitate, why do this?
People have lost their minds.
I don’t care about police brutality when it comes to these cases
Why are all these places in the South?
These people need to find Jesus.
And whats crazy is most of these people are grown enough to know better. These arent 8 year olds pulling these pranks
Lots of people with undiagnosed mental health illness roaming the streets.
I ain't got nothing 'nice' to say about her.... Nope and Nope...nothing nice to say
He is NOT funny He just encouraging this mess to continue.
Don't be messing with my 'vanilla bean' and coffee crunch ice cream.
What ???? !!! Don't they come wrapped? In paper like bandaide? (I'm so upset about these happenings; I can't spell bandaides)
Well, they won't find him in the supermarket...even Jesus won't touch that food. Nope and Nope
This is the one who purchased the ice cream after licking it on film. He got a slap on the wrist.
Ice cream licker pleads guilty
A Belle Rose man who was arrested over the summer for licking and sticking his finger in a container of ice cream at a grocery store was ordered to pay a fine, Assumption Parish prosecutors said.
Lenise Lloyd Martin III, 37, was charged on July 6 with criminal mischief and unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity, the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
He pleaded guilty to the unlawful posting of criminal activity charge on Nov. 21, prosecutors said. After accepting Martin’s plea, District Judge Thomas Kliebert Jr. ordered him to pay a $150 fine plus court costs in the amount of $189. He was given the option of performing 34 hours of community service instead of paying the fine and costs.
Martin entered the Big B’s Supermarket at 7107 La. 1 in Belle Rose and was filmed licking and sticking his finger into a container of Blue Bell ice cream before putting it back on the shelf, police said.
A video showing the incident was then posted to social media, police said. After store employees became aware of the video, they alerted the Sheriff’s Office, sheriff’s Capt. Lonny Cavalier said.
During questioning, Martin told deputies he wanted to become famous by making a video of himself licking ice cream after becoming inspired by a similar social media stunt a week earlier, authorities said.
Martin was taken into custody and booked into the Assumption Parish jail, where he was late released on bond.
Martin’s incident came after a viral video surfaced of a woman taking the lid off of a container of Blue Bell and licking the ice cream at a Walmart in Texas.
“He was basically a copycat,” Cavalier said. “At the time when he tampered with the goods he had not bought them, so our position is that he clearly didn’t own the container of ice cream that he opened and stuck his finger into and licked. Therefore, he was tampering with a product.”
As deputies were interviewing Martin he showed them a receipt that indicated he bought a container of ice cream identical to the one that he had opened, Cavalier said.
“The first thing we did was go into the ice cream cooler and check all the ice cream to be sure the container he took was not there,” Cavalier said.
Assistant District Attorney Lana Chaney prosecuted the case.

New court date set for Port Arthur 'Blue Bell licker'
D'Adrien Anderson was supposed to enter a plea in court on Monday

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Texas — Editor's note: The video above was from when Anderson was released from jail after posting bail in August 2019.
A new court date has been set for D'Adrien Anderson — who went viral after posting video of himself licking a half-gallon of Blue Bell ice cream and putting it back inside a store freezer.
Anderson was supposed to enter a plea in court on Monday. That did not happen and a new court date was set for Dec. 4.
In the video Anderson, 24, posted on Facebook in August, he opens the ice cream and licks it before he put it back inside the freezer at a Port Arthur Walmart.
The video was quickly shared by more than two thousand people around Southeast Texas and other parts of the country. Port Arthur police said there was a huge outcry after the video was posted.
Anderson was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, which was due to the monetary loss Walmart suffered after they were forced to throw out all of the ice cream and restock shelves.
He was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond.
While the Facebook video appears to show Anderson walking away after putting the ice cream back in the freezer, he told 12News that he actually paid for the ice cream that he licked.
Port Arthur police said that Anderson did show them a receipt proving he purchased the ice cream.
"I knew it was going to go viral, but I didn't know it was going to go viral that fast," Anderson said.
Anderson even joked that he "trolled all of Southeast Texas". That stunt cost him his job, and he later told 12News that he was lucky to only be charged with a misdemeanor.
He also told 12News that he regretted the viral video prank and that he even received threats from people online.
Jefferson county district attorney Bob Wortham said he wished he could charge Anderson with a felony.
I can't find anything on the girl who started the whole thing.
I wonder if she got off.
Let me start a trend
A man filmed licking a tub of ice cream will spend 30 days in jail and pay restitution to Blue Bell

(CNN)Licking open containers of Blue Bell ice cream and sticking them back on freezer shelves was a fleeting fad in the summer of 2019 that delighted viral fame chasers and enraged law enforcement.
One of the lickers who got caught will serve jail time and pay over $2,000 in fines and restitution.
D'Adrien L'Quinn Anderson of Port Arthur, Texas, pleaded guilty to criminal mischief and sentenced to 30 days in jail for licking a half-gallon of vanilla Blue Bell ice cream.
He'll also pay a fine of $1,000 and restitution of $1,565 to Blue Bell Creameries, the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.
Anderson filmed himself licking the ice cream in August, more than one month after a clip of a juvenile doing the same thing racked up millions of views.
Here's why people lick tubs of ice cream or tongue depressors and put the video on social media
The 24-year-old told CNN affiliate WOAI he only did it to go viral. But the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office said the act was "much more than a stunt."
"He is just a copycat," district attorney Bob Wortham told WOAI in January. "And the way to stop copycats is to enforce it very strongly."
Another person was caught on camera licking ice cream in a store, police say
Anderson later claimed he bought the ice cream after licking it and putting it back in the freezer, but the court said his act was costly to the creamery company, which replaced its inventory after spotting his video.
Blue Bell didn't respond to CNN's requests for comment, but after the first viral incident in June, the Texas creamery condemned the act and said it had removed all half-gallons of the ice cream flavor seen licked in the video.
"Food tampering is not a joke, and we will not tolerate tampering with our products," the company said.
The teenager thought to kick off the trend was not charged as an adult for licking the dessert. But a 36-year-old Louisiana man was arrested in July for doing the same thing. Police investigating that incident said they believed he'd wanted to "create some notoriety" for himself by posting the footage on Facebook.
