    Another apparent incident of someone licking ice cream at a store has surfaced; this time in Louisiana.

    Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office says a man posted a video of himself on Facebook opening a Blue Bell ice cream container, licking it, poking it with his finger and putting it back on the shelf.

    News outlets report 36-year-old Lenise Martin III was charged Saturday with property tampering and posting criminal activity.

    Police Commander Lonny Cavalier says after being alerted of Martin's actions by management, deputies found Martin at the scene showing the sales clerk a receipt showing he bought the ice cream he licked. Deputies searched the freezer and confirmed the purchase but still decided to move forward with the charges.
