PORT ARTHUR, Texas (WDAF) -- D’Adrien L’Quinn Anderson pleaded guilty to criminal mischief and was sentenced to 30 days in jail for licking a half-gallon of vanilla Blue Bell ice cream in August 2019.

He’ll also pay a fine of $1,000 and restitution of $1,565 to Blue Bell Creameries, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Anderson, 24, was recorded licking the ice cream in August. He said he only did it to "go viral."

Anderson claimed he bought the ice cream after licking it and putting it back in the freezer, but the court said his act was costly to the creamery company, which replaced its inventory after spotting his video.
