Ice Cream Prankster Finds Out the Harsh Punishment for His Crime
The man who was filmed licking Blue Bell ice cream and returning it to the shelf in a Texas supermarket has pled guilty to public mischief according to The Daily Mail.
According to the online news outlet, “He could now face up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. Anderson has pleaded for leniency, asking the judge for probation.”
D'Adrien Anderson, 24, who goes by “Dapper Don” on social media, admitted the crime on Thursday according to the Daily Mail, after he posted a video to his social media of him perpetrating the deed.
The video was about 20 seconds long and showed him taking a carton of ice cream from the shelf at a Walmart in Port Arthur, Texas in August, licking it, and replacing it on the shelf.
According to the Daily Mail, the perpetrator had a habit of these type antics and even joked about his August ice cream foray.
“Anderson's Facebook and Instagram accounts include multiple videos and pictures of him playing pranks on people,” the Daily Mail reported.
“One video shows him taking jars off a grocery store shelf immediately after an employee sets them up. Another shows him running onto the Toyota Center floor in the middle of a Houston Rockets game in Houston before security escorts him out of the arena.”
“This guy loves publicity even if it's for the wrong reason,” Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham told KFDM at the time according to the Daily Mail. “That can lead to bigger and worse things. If we're going to save this guy, we have to do it with this case or he's over the hill.”
