    The companies involved should do a civil suit for damages, IMO.

    Since the clown is likely unable to afford the cost of the losses involved, they could possibly settle out of court for a wickedly embarrassing follow up (viral?) video so bad that nobody else wants to be "that guy."

    Seems that Walmart attracts a lot of whackos. I'm surprised that this doesn't happen in California. Next, they'll be totally wrapping up ice cream to try to prevent this situations. Until then, I'll have to watch out for this because it probably happens at other stores.
    The reason you don't see it here in CA is they are already required to put a tamper resistant seal around the lid. We do that instead of beating the snot out of people who tamper with our ice cream. DR

    Apparently, CA has some good ideas. But, it probably increases the cost of the ice cream.

    When I was a little kid my parents and I watched a couple taste testing pancake syrup in the store, so this isn't a new idea.

    Looks like we now need to have tamper proof ice cream packaging.

    Can't you get charged with assault for spitting on someone? I see no difference in this. Actually it's worse than spitting IMO. With direct mouth to mouth contact through eating he could pass someone a disease.

    An assault charge would probably require proof someone else consumed the product or leaving it behind like a booby trap. IIRC he purchased the product he contaminated immediately after filming the social media video.

    The store didnít know this at first and pulled all product based on the social media video; later review of security cams revealed he bought the ice cream.

    So no other customer ate the ice cream. The primary damage was to consumer trust in the product and the cost of destroying a bunch of product to ensure public safety.

    How can he be charged with a crime if he purchased it?

    He should have to eat ice cream continuously until he develops terminal ice-cream headache.

    This is the second time itís happened to the same brand of ice cream. They wrap their other ice cream why canít they put a seal on the half gallon like other companies do? Itís not expensive. Iím surprised they didnít put a seal on it after the first time it happened? Heck, small yogurt containers are sealed why canít they do it? I get Bryers, just a simple strip of plastic tells me it hasnít been opened.

    Yes itís good this idiot went to jail, but Iím glad I donít own stock in that ice cream company since they let it happen twice.

    + 10 for Bryers and Blue Bunny, both sealed!

    He wants someone to eat ice cream he licked.
    Appropriate punishment (not limited to) would be having to eat ice cream that has been licked, a police dog could do the honor of getting it ready.
    Video the offender eating the dog licked ice cream and post video on police dept. social media.

    But in Texas we like "beating the snot" out of people who tamper with our ice cream.
