It’s happened again. Not only is this new viral trend illegal, but it’s extremely unhealthy.
A 36-year-old man in Louisiana inspired by video of a teen licking a tub of Blue Bell ice cream has been arrested for the same crime.
He’s seen in a video licking the top of a Blue Bell ice cream tub, moving his finger around the top, licking it again, and putting it back in the freezer. It happened in Louisiana.
Police in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, said Lenise Martin III was taken into custody Saturday after the video was posted on facebook.

Martin showed detectives a receipt for the purchase suggesting he actually bought the contaminated ice cream.
Officials said Martin was still arrested on charges of criminal mischief as well as unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity.
