This just CANNOT become a trend.  In case you missed it, a 17-year-old girl went viral over the weekend after a video showed her LICKING some ice cream at a Walmart in Texas and then putting it back in the freezer.

Turns out that's felony tampering, and it can get you two to 20 YEARS in prison.  (Now some stores are locking up the ice cream!!)

And even though that's a STEEP punishment . . . being Internet famous for 12 seconds is clearly worth two decades in prison, so the copycats have started.

A 36-year-old guy named Lenise Martin from Belle Rose, Louisiana was just arrested after a video showed him taking ice cream out of the freezer at a grocery store, taking off the lid, licking it, and putting it back.

Lenise told the cops he wound up buying the ice cream, and it looks like he did . . . but he was STILL arrested for unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and criminal mischief.
