You may have seen during the week footage of a woman licking a tub of ice cream in a store, and then putting it back in the freezer.
While almost every who has seen it would agree that doing such a thing is disgusting and immature behaviour, surely no one would say it’s worth prison time… Let alone 20 years.
However, that’s the reality that faces the ‘Lurfin Licker,’ who’s stunt has been viewed more than 11 million times on YouTube, and is believed to have been shot in a branch of Walmart in Lufkin, Texas, reports Sky News.
Shockingly police in Texas have confirmed they are considering arresting the woman on the charge of second-degree felony – tampering with a consumer product.
The penalty for such a conviction in Texas comes with a two-to 20-year prison term and up to $10,000US in fines.
A police statement said: “Our detectives are working to confirm the identity of the female suspect seen in a viral video of her licking a half-gallon of Blue Bell “Tin Roof” ice cream in a Lufkin Walmart store around 11pm, June 28.
“Once her identity is verified, detectives will proceed with getting a warrant for her arrest on a charge of second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product.
“As that portion of the investigation continues, detectives are focusing on identifying the male (in the green shirt) behind the camera seen in images of the two entering the store together.”
Lufkin Director of Public Safety Gerald Williamson said: “Our biggest concern is consumer safety – in that regard we are glad to see the tainted product off the shelves.”
