Blue Bell licking: Teen will not face adult charges in viral ice cream stunt
Police say they have found the person who opened a carton of ice cream at a Texas Walmart, licked the creamy goodness, and put it back in the freezer. The ice cream maker said it inspected the freezer case that contained the licked ice cream, found the problematic tub, and removed all Tin Roof half-gallons from the Lufkin Walmart.

The girl laughs throughout the short video. The owner of the Twitter account responsible for sharing the viral video, which goes by the name Optimus Primal, tells TIME he found the video through Instagram as part of a story shared by the actress Alexis Fields-Jackson and reposted it. He says did not know the identities of the people in the video. Blue Bell has removed all other half gallons of Tin Roof ice cream from the Walmart location.
