Rememeber the recent viral video of a young woman taking the lid off of a Blue Bell container, licking the ice cream, and putting it back in the display case? Now, videos of other people doing the same thing are making the rounds on social media.
It happened in Louisiana, but this time 36 year old Lenise Martin III was taken into custody by the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Lenise was recorded in a store licking Blue Bell ice cream, moving his finger in the container, and putting it back into the freezer.
Investigators say after management became aware of the video, Lenis returned to the store and showed a receipt to prove he bought the ice cream.
According to WAFB, authorities searched the freezer and could not locate the container. Deputies said there was a continuation of the clip where Martin takes the ice cream off the shelf a second time.
“We do know that he paid for a container that was identical to the one that he did lick and we could not find it on the shelf,” said, Commander Lonny Cavalier of the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.
A spokesman for the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office said “We discourage anyone from copying this atrocious act.” “It is illegal. It’s a health risk to others. We will pursue anyone we see do this. You will be charged.”
Deputies moved forward with charges including unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity along with tampering with property.
