On Monday, D'Adrien Anderson walked into a Walmart in Port Arthur, Texas, took a carton of Blue Bell ice cream out of the freezer, took the top off, licked the ice cream, put the top back on, put the carton back in the freezer, and posted footage of his copycat stunt on social media. Surveillance footage reveals that Anderson soon took the same carton back out of the freezer and purchased it himself, but police took him into custody anyway on Thursday, and charged the 24-year-old with criminal mischief. "This can lead to bigger and worse things," District Attorney Bob Wortham told KFDM-TV. "If we're going to save this guy, we have to do it with this case or he's over the hill."
