PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) — A 24-year-old man has drawn a 30-day jail term for posting on social media a video of himself removing an ice cream container from a Texas market freezer, licking the contents and returning the container to the freezer.

D’Adrien Anderson also was sentenced Wednesday to an additional six-month jail term probated for two years and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $1,565 in restitution to Blue Bell Creameries, which replaced all of its products in the freezer at a Walmart in Port Arthur, Texas.

Store surveillance cameras show he finally took the ice cream from the freezer and bought it. The incident happened in August.
