It looks like illegal ice cream-licking is quickly becoming the viral fad of 2019. Here's the "scoop": CNN reports that after a teenage girl was caught on camera last week opening a carton of Blue Bell at a Texas Walmart and licking its contents before putting it back on the shelf, a 36-year-old Louisiana man is now behind bars for a similar offense. Lenise Martin III reportedly posted video of his Saturday stunt on Facebook; he's now being held on charges of unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity and criminal mischief for allegedly tampering with property. While Martin reportedly showed detectives a receipt indicating he'd purchased his tampered Blue Bell carton, Assumption Parish Commander Lonny Cavalier says, "At any rate, it's a terrible thing to do...He puts it on Facebook to gain this notoriety and at the end of the day, it gives other people ideas that are not the best interest of public health." Meanwhile, the girl who tweeted footage of herself licking a half-gallon of Blue Bell Tin Roof ice cream may or may not face the music. "We do not intend to pursue charges against her as an 'adult," Lufkin police said in a statement. "What happens from here is at the discretion of the juvenile justice system."
