Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the ice cream section, yet another video has surfaced that shows someone licking Blue Bell ice cream before returning the container to a freezer in a Texas Walmart.
In this case, however, the man seen pulling the stunt has been confirmed to be a prankster who actually paid for the tub of ice cream afterward. The culprit, known online as “Dapper Don,” posted the 20-second clip Monday on Facebook. While it’s since amassed more than 82,000 views, most of the people who watched the video apparently failed to find humor in it. One Facebook user called the act “disgusting,” while another wrote, “What a punk. You can’t even be original!”
Police were able to locate Dapper Don, who explained the video was made as a prank. As proof, he presented investigators with the ice cream seen in the clip, along with a receipt, says Port Arthur Police Chief Tim Duriso. Although he wasn’t arrested, officials are waiting for the district attorney’s office to review the case before officially letting the ice cream licker off the hook, Duriso says.
Should he face charges for this “prank?” How would you feel if you owned Blue Bell?
