A backlash to a video showing a teenager licking ice cream from a tub before putting it back on a supermarket's freezer shelf has emerged online. Still, he was charged with criminal mischief and unlawful posting of criminal activity for publicity.
Cavalier said the proof of purchase doesn't absolve him "because at any rate, it's a awful thing to do", he told CNN.
He is in custody until a judge sets bond, Cavalier said.
"Taking into consideration that he eventually purchased the same container is one thing", Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office Commander Lonny Cavalier told CNN Sunday.
Let's all try to resist the urge to take part in every single viral trend - especially those that could potentially put other people's safety at risk and lead to criminal charges. "Let's see if we can start an epidemic (literally)". "You will be charged", the official said. The Walmart wrote on Facebook that they're "guarding our Blue Bell ice cream for your weekend party".
"We believe it's a copy cat incident", Cavalier said. Due to the fact she was 17, a minor under Texas law, police said they would not pursue charges against her as an adult.
The Lufkin Police Department said the juvenile suspect's identity has not been released and the case is being turned over to the juvenile courts. Meanwhile, the police have yet to decide the fate of her boyfriend, who is of legal age.
When Blue Bell returned to production following the listeria outbreak, Abbott didn't issue harsh tweets about the company's behavior, or condemn the factory conditions the FDA found during its investigation as "unacceptable".
