D'Adrien Anderson posted a Facebook video of him licking Blue Bell ice cream at a Walmart in Port Arthur, Texas and then he put it back on the shelf.

His father says he was just trying to get Facebook likes.

Walmart didn't like it and says food tampering is not a joke.

The store was forced to dump its Blue Bell ice cream.

Police arrested him and he faces criminal mischief charges.  It's a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham says, "He thinks it's funny. You know what? It's not funny. I take it seriously."

Anderson was able to provide a receipt showing he purchased the carton but that wasn't shown on the Facebook post.
